Multi-seat home system

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): AUD$2k

Country: Australia

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Photo editing, video editing, light scientific, mult-user, htpc, web browsing. Games: 4x, sim, walk-em-up, indie, nothing cutting edge.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 


Current system is a Core i5-3570 + GTX 950 running Ubuntu.


Instead of upgrading several aging systems (some of which get rarely used), I wanted to build a system with some kind of multi-seat configuration for me and my partner on top of a freeNAS array. So that's 2 simultaneous users, most demanding use is probably 1080p video + photo editing.


Ideally it would also have some sort of wireless KVM over IP console, basically a 1080p laptop or tablet without the guts, to browse the web or watch videos from the system from anywhere in the house (not sure a non-enterprise version of this exists. Nexdock 2 seems closest). This should work simultaneously with standard monitor, keyboard, and mouse plugged in next to the system for the multi user.


Not sure what sort of system requirements this would have, or even if it's possible with any kind of budget, what I was thinking of was a Ryzen 5 system and keeping the GTX 950 for the time being
