Please suggest mobo/CPU combo

General Computer Security - Tech Support Forum - www.techsupportforum.com
My current computer is failing. The new one I will build will be a combination home computer and server for all my videos using PLEX.

I don't game, and mostly the home computer is used for to store personal information, home finances, e-mail, and surfing the web.

I plan to have several hard drives that I can put my videos on and use that computer as a server. I do not plan to use RAID because all these videos are ones I own on BD or DVD, and I could always rebuild any hard drive that failed.

I would plan to have an SSD for the OS and I have two optical drives. I would then have between 3 and 5 additional hard drives to put my data on.

It is only my wife and I in our home, and I don't need PLEX to do any transcoding, as we watch videos on my TV not other devices.

So, I have relatively little need of a high end board or CPU. I would like a board that has at least 6 SATA ports, but more would be helpful.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

TIA.

SMK
