As the title, was going to get a laptop which I may still do but wanted to price up a 2u Quicksync build to run off my 4u Unraid server which holds all my storage.
I want it to be able to handle 4K if possible, no problem if not as I have two versions of every film/series I have, one in 4K (also some HDR) and one 1080p.
I’m unsure on the Motherboard/CPU/Fan combo due to the height but would use a NVMe drive and 16gb of ram (I think that’s enough?). Just use the onboard GPU I think as Quicksync does the magic.
I’m based in the U.K. which doesn’t matter to much for the parts apart from the case which is harder to find in the U.K. I think the case is going to be the hardest to find? Again, the build has to be below £225 or I will just get a couple of laptops.
