Heavy media transcoding/HTPC and web hosting server build

Servers - www.overclock.net
As the title says, I'm looking to build a Plex host + web server host (for my startup business); would these specs be enough for a moderate/low traffic initially web server and a 5/6 simultaneous 1080p plex streamer?

CPU: i5 2500k (from my old build - lying around)

CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Gemini II M4 low profile

Ram: 16gb G.Skill Snipers (from my old build - lying around)

Mobo: ASUS-P8Z77-M

PSU: EVGA 80+ 500w PSU

Case: Silverstone mATX htpc case

Storage: 128gb Samsung SSD (OS, installations)

5x seagate baracuda 7200rpm 3TB (RAID 0/5 - i havent really decided yet)

PCIE SATA controller: 4x port PCIE SATA adaptor

PCIE LAN controller: Intel Dual Port Gigabit NIC

OS: still a toss up between windows server and a linux distro...

Anyway, been a while since i have used this forum but any input would be greatly appreciated! especially feedback

Edit: forgot to mention I would be connecting a 3TB NAS to the motherboards onboard LAN (to save moving 3tb of data)
