CPU, RAM and mobo | Hyper-V | Plex, file server and torrentbox

Servers - www.overclock.net
Hi all! Since my GF likes to stream while I game, and I sometimes take my computer out of the house. I need a dedicated plex server. Having worked with IT earlier, I messed around with hyper v and its fun. So I want a machine that lets me do that.

I had an older i7 3770, but was struggeling to find a used mobo. When I finally got one, it was a dud and was not working. Lost around 30€ on this.

Budget:

Around 300€ / 320$.

Usage:

Windows hyper v host running file services. A plex vm and a torrent box vm. Services will be added as I please.

Hardware needed:

CPU, RAM and mobo

Hardware got:

5 disks (8 tb + 400 gb ssd).

PSU 550w

Phanteks eclipse p400

AMD alternative:

AMD FX-8350, 8 core at 4.00 GHz. | 180€

MSI 970A, ATX, DDR3 | 75€

Hyper X Fury 2x4GB | 75€

MSI GeForce GT 710 | 49 €

Total Price around 380 €

Problem here is that I need a dedicated gpu.

Intel altnernative:

Intel Core i5-7400 | 190€

MSI H110 PC MATE | 79$

Kingston Value DDR4 2400Mhz 16 GB | 130$

Total price: 400€

Another option is to get an older Xeon, but then the issue is that I need a mobo. Any recommendations on this matter? '); }
