130 for the nuc Optiplex 7040. Passmark of 5000 or soOh no. That was beyond my budget build. All in, my Plex/PiHole RPi 4 cost like $90. I already had the hard drive. I knew that I would be the only one using it. The cost of running it was also a factor when I went for the build.
I had Plex running on an Ubuntu 32bit powered Cyrix build. It was an old XP machine for running a billboard. It couldn't transcode anything. You could play 720p videos over HDMI, but that's about it. Just needed something a tiny bit better. I do wish that it was a bit more powerful to handle NAS duties using eSATA. USB 3 is too slow to do heavy data usage.
ha, cyrix. Thats a name ive not heard in a long time.
