Best EMBY Server 2020


Recommended Posts

Has anyone read this article from techuplife

https://techuplife.com/best-emby-server-2020/

I'm planning buy a pc to run my EMBY server and my budget is about £600. I'm thinking the Dell Precision T3630

 

Operating System            Windows 10 Pro

CPU Model                        Core i5

Processor Speed              3000 MHz

RAM Size                           8192 MB

Graphics Coprocessor    Intel UHD Graphics 630

Hard disk description      Hdd

Hardware Interface         DVD-RW

 

Any thoughts on this would be most appreciated

James

definitely agree with the above suggestion, you'll see a massive speed boost from putting the OS and emby db on a SSD of any kind

if its just for emby then you should be fine, if you are thinking of putting much else on the pc you might want to think slightly larger. IMO

Some (including me) may say Linux.  

It could help with your budget too.  Especially if you aren't doing anything else with the system.

It's not for everyone though.

if budget is your concern you can get a 🤠 win10 pro licence from ebay for less than USD10. works perfectly well though

16GB of memory would be a good idea as well if not that much more expensive.

Then get an 256GB M2 NVME SSD installed for the OS.

The only thing not a smoking deal is the memory and the NVME. I have the DELL Optiplex 7060 MFF with the same 8GB Crucial RAM and the same Samsung 860 EVO SSD. It cold boots in under 20 seconds with Emby up running. It is ridiculously power efficient as well. Does not support a full size graphics card so if you ever wish for one avoid the Micro Form Factor. Otherwise jump all over this it is a smoking deal ATM. All the DELL Optiplex line is on sale ATM. :)

99% of the time it runs silent even during heavy 4K HEVC -> 1080P H264 you never hear it spin up a fan. Only during boot do I ever hear that fan on the video card whirr up.

Just purchased the following machine:

--------------------------------------------------------------

Inspiron 3881 Mini Tower

10th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-10400 processor(6-Core 12M Cache 2.9GHz to 4.3GHz)

Windows 10 Home (64Bit)

16GB, 2x8GB, DDR4, 2666MHz

256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive

2TB 7200 rpm 3.5" SATA Hard Drive

---------------------------------------------------------------

Are there any benefits to upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Pro?
