  1. The stuck in neutral comment was more about Intel vs AMD when Intel got stuck from now competition from AMD. Don’t want AMD to fall into that. Which I don’t think they will as they still want that market share.
  2. Haha. I’m just glad to see competition happening again for GPUs. If only Intel can get into gear. Don’t want AMD to get complacent like Intel did because the other guy is stuck in neutral.
  3. I should have clarified that the GT 710 is just to use as a video adapter for UnRaid. I was still undecided about running Plex in a VM or not and know that you can’t pass the GPU to the VM you use for UnRaid. I got one free so that’s why I mentioned it. The 1060 6GB is what will reside in it permanently. Might end up being a 1070 if I upgrade my 1080 Ti and give it to my wife.
  4. I was looking and still think they are gonna be a tad out of the budget. However I do think I’m gonna grab some 8TB ones to shuck. I can get them for $20 less than the 6TB ones I picked.
  5. I could swing those but I like the idea of having drives that are made to be running near 24/7. I’ve had some bad luck with external drives in the past year as well which is the other reason I’ve been leaning towards a server build. I almost lost my entire original Xbox ISO collection, I had it all backed up to Mega however was able to redownload since my DVD drive on the Xbox is on its last legs for ripping discs.
  6. I can’t quite swing the 12TB without needing a divorce lawyer as well lol. I’m only going to be buying 3 of the 6TB to start with and adding more as funds allow. Thanks for the reply!
  7. I’ve been lurking the forums here without ever making a post till just a minute ago so I figured I might wanna introduce myself. I’m 26 years old and from the US. My username has nothing to do with a catch22 but rather my position I played for baseball and my 2 favorite uniform numbers I had. Some of you may recognize my name from the now dead TIZ forums. It was there that I was introduced to actual PC gaming and not just Windows 95 solitaire and free cell (well I did play the heck out of Dangerous Dave) I love building computers and modding “retro consoles”. My favori
  8. I’ve been wanting to do a server build for Plex and to host a Minecraft server for the past 2 years and money never quite lined up. Well now it’s starting too but I still don’t wanna go too over the top. My part list I am thinking of going with is this. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/catch2030/saved/89Cnt6 I have the case and cpu already. The motherboard and GPU price is from some used sales I have seen locally. The GPU would be for Plex transcoding (gonna use a gt 710 or whatever I find for cheap for initial setup) at mostly 1080p with some 4K here and there for our favori
