This is my first time on here and I am looking to build a file/plex server. So far I have managed to get hold of a Fractal Node 804 (very cheap) as a starter, however, with regards to the other parts relies on the motherboard I choose.
I am torn between going for something like a ‘SuperMicro’ (DDR3), but not always that easy to source on ‘eBay UK’ or a more modern one like ‘Asus’ (DDR4). I want to have a least 6 SATA ports for now.
So is it better to go old and hope the parts last or new, which hopefully will last longer and maybe more reliable?
Would really appreciate any advice.
