If you are going to be relying on Hardware acceleration there is no need for an i7 7700 CPU as the Pentium G4600 has the same HD 630 GPU at 1/3 of the cost.

The HD 630 GPU should do 10-15 simultaneous 1080p transcodes.

Multiple servers may be the cheapest option but be aware of the drawbacks of maintaining multiple servers. Also Linux is a good option if you are comfortable with it.

But can the i7 7700k also handle 10-15 transcodes in 720p?
 
Well, that would be enough for me.
 
Thanks for helping
 
 
 
Mas o i7 7700 também pode processar 10-15 transcodificações em 720p?
 
Bem, isso seria suficiente para mim.
 
Obrigado por ajudar

Yes, the 10-15 1080p streams is likely the worst case scenario. Depending on other factors such as source material, requested resolution, and requested bitrate you will likely be able to do more than 15 streams. It is also worth noting that often media doesn't require a full transcode and can be "direct streamed”. This is much less resource intensive and you can expect many more streams.

There are many ways to achieve your end goal and you will get many opinions on how to do it. I personally would look for a used enterprise server and scale up from there if needed. But that is just my opinion. Good luck with your project.

As jdiesel said, you dont need an i7-7700, If I were you i'll go for an i3-7100 or i5-7600. It'll be enough. And you don't need the GTX again!

Choose linux as OS only if you know how to use it or if you want to learn. Otherwise choose Windows if you are more confortable with it. That's you election, I prefer Linux.

Thank you friends
 
I'm very happy to know that I have 15 transcodes at 720p at the same time with this setting.
 
I already asked to delete the video card
 
I'm going to stick with Windows for now and I'm trying to learn from another linux machine.
 
You guys are really cool !!
 
Thank you all !!
 
 
 
 
Obrigado amigos
 
Estou muito feliz por saber que tenho 15 transcodificações a 720p ao mesmo tempo com esta configuração.
 
Eu já pedi para excluir a placa de vídeo
 
Eu vou ficar com o Windows por agora e estou tentando aprender com outra máquina linux.
 
Vocês são muito legais!
 
Obrigado a todos !!
