Building advice for new

Current system is 4th gen i5, win 7 and plex with media scattered across 6 wd red 4tb. Wanting to upgrade to UnRaid with Plex. 8 remote users so transcoding happens alot.

I like the thought behind HW transcoding, but with each new Dolby upgrade you would eventually need new hardware.

Question is should I try to go for HW transcoding using the i9-9900KS (waiting for the unraid kernel upgrade)
or should I go with dual cpu E5-2650 v2 and skip HW entirely

You could get one of the prodesk g4 mini’s with an 8th gen processor for harware transcoding and build a Nas Killer 4 for file storage with unraid for near the cost of the 9900ks alone.
