  1. Thanks for the replies. I was already leaning in the direction of the dedicated NAS, now I am more so. My first choice was Freenas, I've used it professionally in other small projects, but haven't really used it since 2011. From things that I've been reading there is a RAM to storage recommendation for ZFS of 1 gb RAM per 1 TB of storage. Is that accurate?
  2. I recently built a new computer, finally replacing my 2600k. Now I need advice on whether I should repurpose my old computer into a NAS/MediaServer(Plex) or just use my new computer to do everything effectively retiring my old faithful 2600k. New computer: CPU: Ryzen 9 3900X MOBO: Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite Wifi RAM: G.Skill 32GB 3600 Old Computer: CPU: I7-2700k with 16GB RAM I currently run my media library off of a single 6TB WD My Book, but would like to expand my storage and have some measure of redundancy for pictures and other items that I also have stored on that disk. The 3900x is currently my gaming/streaming(Twitch) rig, with the streaming portion being the main reason that I choose the 3900x, as I didn't want to build a dedicated streaming computer. This computer also acts as my Plex server. Also, in addition to this if I use the 3900x what Windows based storage application should I use? Drive Pool + Snap Raid, Storage Spaces etc... If I use the 2600k I will more than likely being using UnRaid but am open to other options as well. I have 6 3TB Hard Drives that I plan to use for storage. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
