61 months ago

This machines primary purpose will be to transcode media to be served throughout my home network. Will also be used as my primary personal machine. All serving is done on a separate unraid server. Majority of the parts I had laying around. The main purchased parts will be the CPU, MoBo, RAM, power supply, and case. Any thoughts?
