Nas build with some questions

Budget (including currency): ~1000 usd

Country: USA 

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for:  dedicated Nas with ideally 16-20 tbs in raid 1 

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): 

Hi! I'm thinking about building a Nas just for some cold storage for pictures, projects and ect. I have some real old hardware i.e i5 2300, 2 2gb sticks of ram, and some random mobo, . My main question would be is would that be enough to run a Nas? If not what would be the minimum hardware for it?

Seems like seagates ironwolf pros would be a good idea because their non pro versions iirc have pretty loud operation

Not too familiar with this side of building so any insight would be much appreciated

sure. It just has to store and move files. You don't really need any sort of high end specs for that. Can basically use any computer that will run a modern OS.

Cool! I suppose that'll make my life a bit easier lol. Any suggestions for 4tb drives?

If noise is a factor just a warning on Seagate IWP's from personal experience, I did find them a little noisier than WD Red Pro's and also ran hotter
