I'm trying build a FreeNAS server with the Plex plugin, but I can't figure out how the CPU and GPU requirements. I known that for a file server no a lot of CPU power is needed, but if I'm going to be installing the Plex plugin, and I need the server to handle at least two high-definition video streaming. So, I don't know how to pick the CPU and GPU for this project.
Anyone have any suggestions? Does it matter the GPU? If yes, which should do the job well for a least two video transcoding simultaneously? Which CPU should I get for this server? I'm leaning toward Intel, because it's more stable with FreeNAS or at least is what the official requirements say. Thanks,
