Hi, First, thanks for any help that you can provide with that. I have old parts that I no longer use and I would like to build a media server with them. Here are the parts: Motherboard: GA-Z68A-D3-B3 Processor: i5 2300 @ 3.10ghz Memory: 2x 2gb @ 1333mhz & 2x 4gb @ 1333mhz Graphic Card 1: Asus Geforce GTX 560TI Graphic Card 2: Gigabyte Geforce 650GT Boot: 128GB SSD Storage (spinning): 1x 1tb & 4x 4tb in RAID5 Power Supply: 500w I plan to use Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 with Docker, I am not very familiar with Unraid / FreeNas, etc. 1. Can I use both graphics cards even if they are not in SLI for transcoding? If not which one should I use? (I want to be able to transcode 4k if possible) 2. Is the power supply powerful enough if I can use both graphics cards? 3. Should I find out about Unraid or FreeNas, etc.? Is it worth it? 4. Any other suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated. P.S. If I can't have 4k, I would settle for 1080p.
