So many of you don’t realize that I have a secondary machine that I use for different purposes.
This machine is mostly dedicated to keeping an eye on my cameras

It also runs my Plex Media Server and Serva Windows deployment software.

Lastly, it also houses all of my movies.

Unfortunately I underestimated it’s build needs and when running at FULL power it cannot keep up with my Plex transcoding needs. Which is why I had decided it was time for something with a bit more “beef” is needed.
