I am trying to minimize spending while putting together something I am happy with leaving on 24/7 in my office. Problem is the old gaming PC is loud and with both PCs on it heats up my room significantly.

I can definitely take out some of the fans to reduce noise, possibly upgrade to 2 intake 1 outake with some nocutas or similar. Maybe a new case with better sound dampening and more trays would be worth it?
I plan on using this mainly for Plex and some light hosting. Would it be beneificial to use my 970 for hardware transcoding?
I was considering possibly buying a node 304 and used m-itx and use the exisiting hardware, or maybe a node 804 with a supermicro m-atx, xeon and ECC RAM. Just don’t want to spend more than the cost of a synology because I would probably just do that then lol.
Thanks for the help!!
