NAS OMV MiniPC build


Build Help/Ready:

What is your intended use for this build?

OpenmediaVault NAS & Nextcloud Server, running 24/7. Main purpose will be (downloading, storing) media and serving this via i.e. PLEX or Emby over the local network as well as over the internet through VPN (to my mobile devices).


If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)

No interest in gaming and no need for a separate GPU, onboard is good enough.Just handle 4k HDR streaming . No transcoding.Just serving the files to my other devices: Xbox X , Philips 4K HDR TV, Samsung TV. It should have as lower price, size, noise, power consumption as possible.Hence, the choice of MiniPC


What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?

Probably around $100-200. Lesser is better, but mainly looking for a tractor trailer and not a Ferrari.


In what country are you purchasing your parts?



How about This MiniPC ?

Celeron variety 8GB ram, 60 GB HDD?    120 USD


Or I can get a used i5 2nd Gen Dell optiplex 790 4gb ram  500GB HDD 180 USD
