Crowleyisking 2 Posted January 30 Share Posted January 30 Hey everyone I was wondering if i could get some input on this. So i find myself with a bit of spare cash and was thinking of updating my Server machine. Im currently using an Alienware Alpha R2 - Intel i5 6400T, 16GB of Ram, Nvidia GTX 960 and 256gb SSD for the OS. Running Windows 10 Pro and this machine is only used to run emby. I was looking at this for £300 Dell OptiPlex 3000 Series SPECS: CPU: Intel Core i5 12500 (6 Cores / 6 Threads @ 2.00Ghz) RAM: 16GB Kingston DDR4 - 3200Mhz STORAGE: 256GB M.2 SSD OS: Genuine Windows 11 PRO x64 Activated CONDITION: Like New, has only been used when upgrading RAM to 16GB. Comes with a brand new power cable & Dell keyboard/mouse set. I basically just after a bit of future proofing and potentially having a more power efficient system, especially with the cost of everything going up. Most of my family who use my server have decent client devices but a few of them do end up transcoding the 4K content i have, so would the above machine be a better invetment than my current machine? I dont want to mess around with alternative OS etc, as thats out of my knowledge base lol. Id appreciate any insights or thoughts on moving to the Optiplex?
