Is my current system better than one of those though just minus the raid?

Your current system is a good amount faster, and you can setup software raid if you want aswell.

Currently I am running my Plex server on a Hackintosh with a 1050ti and 4tb storage drive. I am considering switching to a NAS for my plex server as I do not use the Mac OS often enough and would be nice to have a smaller machine for the server (Hackintosh is a Dell Precision Tower).

 

Considering I already have this machine, is the cost (and what is the cost) for a NAS of similar power worth the smaller size and ability to RAID?

How many drives bays do you need? Do you need plex transcoding?

Was looking at 2 bays and I probably will need transcoding

how much transcoding? How many streams at once? What resolution?

 

If you want plex transcoding, you want something like this https://www.amazon.com/Synology-Bay-DiskStation-DS718-Diskless/dp/B075MZTQBT

 

or this if you want qnap.https://www.amazon.com/QNAP-TS-251-Personal-Quad-Core-Transcoding/dp/B015VNLEOQ
