Here is my build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/P7WG29
The ram is $32 per module with needing to buy 2 at a time due to dual cpus
So i'm looking at making an unraid nas/media server at the end of the month and I was wondering how much ram it would require.
I would be starting out with a 10TB drive, Plex, 1-2 VMs, and whatever i find interesting in docker while adding a 10TB parity drive in mid October.
My endgame is to just keep adding 10TB drives and eventually would just end up with 7x10TB data and 2 parity drives with Plex and 1-2 vms. This would be much much further down the road though. Just want to say now I know that this isn't a back up nor is it meant to be just mainly a media server and I would have backups of anything important on and off the nas.
I've read that unraid doesn't require as much ram as freenas and that people regularly run with 8-16GB of ram for just their nas section. So what I am asking is how much ram would I need for my endgame because I would rather just get it now and not deal with getting it latter. I would need to go with 32GB,64GB,96GB because the sticks have to be added in pairs.
I would appreciate any help~
