I'm looking for a home situation where I can have a media, home automation, office, security, and admin server. Plan is to run all though docker containers and ProxmoxVM's with Ubuntu probably.
I do want to start with 8TB raid 1 storage, and have expansion slots available for more HDs over time.
Speed and snappy performance are high priorities since family members and friends will be utilizing as well. It will be placed in a closet with some ventilation, but 80-95 degrees temp is possible. Lights and aesthetics does not matter. Budget is < $2,000
How’s this looking?
Based on your description, everything looks good to me, I'm not seeing much on your list that is going to need a GPU with that kind of video memory, but if you do plan on doing any sort of video editing/gaming that would be a good idea to have.
As long as all of your media encoding can be done through AV1, the Arc card would be ideal. Anything H.264 may be better off sticking with Nvidia so that you have overall better software support if that card is ever relegated to do other tasks. But outside of that change, everything looks good to me!
