    So I want to get into the Plex/Kodi game. I am currently converting my DVD/Blu-ray collection to digital and now I need to be able to store and watch them from my various televisions in the house. I want to build something but keep the price reasonable and not get carried away with way too much performance. I will not be gaming on this machine and will use it for Plex/Kodi and file storage.

    Here is what I was thinking.
    MSI X470GPlus Motherboard
    AMD Ryzen 5 3400G
    16GB of RAM
    Start with 2 M.2 Drives (for OS with redundancy) and 2 enterprise grade hard drives (again with redundancy)
    I would have a max two streams going at the same time.

    Would this get me through with room to grow? Any opinions?

    Do you have a machine for doing this? I'd like to do the same, but very tedious doing this on the PC one at a time.

    Also, I wonder if you could get more answers by posting on our sister site instead: https://www.cordcutters.com/

    Right now I'm using my Surface Pro and my wife's Macbook in the evenings or mornings to do any conversions so it's not ideal and is taking me forever.
