Doesn't dell's business outlet store do refurbished servers?
the hell you doing that needs a PowerEdge R630, I use a HP Gen8 for Plex server and other things, that runs it fine, granted its not doing encoding, i just serve up at the content quality over the local network only.


Even then i suspect you could achieve your ends with a much cheaper and lower spec system. You really dont need all the server grade features of a server for a plex server. That being said i bought a rackmount because i fancied one, gave it away because of the fan noise

HP Gen8 is very quite. Gets great reviews as some of the silentpc sites.
