It depends on how many users you need it to cater for.
I have intel i5-9400F 6 core in my server with MSI Z390Pro-A 16GB Corsair vengence 3000mhz Ram motherboard and it hardly uses anything, GPU is only an Nvidia GT760, Ive never seen it at over 40% cpu usage yet or the GPU either for that matter, no matter what its doing.
What does bottleneck is the HDDs - probably because there are too many of them shared as 2 large "storage space" drives with parity, they max out at 100% when writing but are fine when reading. It is windows and the parity that slows it down, storage spaces is a good idea but the lack of info on it and options is a pain. If you ever use it create a Drive over 16TB otherwise under 16TB will use 4k clusters and kill performance, Over 16TB uses 256k clusters. However the SDDs do not, and the server and the OS are on the SSD, so not even on an m2Nvme - which they ought to be.
The CPU supports HEVC 10bit decoding on chip.
The CPU is actually 2x faster than the GPU (GPU uses NVDEC, Cuda fails on it). The GPU could do with a better card but there is no need yet.
The server is fast and no waiting for thumbnails or pages to load.
I have pcie raiser doublers in it, with sata controllers, USb expansions and LAN cards in them, also 2 Power supplies spliced together power the HDDs, as just one isn't enough. I have 3 of the 5 1gigbit LANs teamed and 2 other ip addresses I can access from the server from if its 3x1gbit is busy. So all in all its heavily loaded, but doesn't bat an eyelid ... yet
Oh and if you decide to go intel just be mindfull that just because the chip fits the motherboard socket doesnt mean it will work or even power on, you have to check compatability too..
