Hey guys, I was searching a little bit but can't really find an answer for my specific question. So heres the backstory, I built a low end Intel based server a few years ago with an i3 6100/MSI B150M ProVD/8GB DDR4, back when I was just storing stuff on it and then streaming to my HTPC thru VLC. Then I moved to Plex and it still worked fine since I only had or streamed 1080P content. We just recently moved and finally bought a 4K TV and now with a few movies in 4K, Plex with buffer for 25 seconds every 10 seconds of play. Checked out the server and the little i3 is pegged at 100%, it just can't handle the load of 4K. All clients use Plex along with Plex on the server itself so the server is doing all of the work. So now my situation is, my current mobo can support up to 6th gen Intel CPUs, and I've seen some i7 6700k chips on here for around $225 shipped but possibly need a cooler, or I found an AMD combo deal at Microcenter with a Ryzen 5 2600X/ASRock AB350 Pro4 for $240 after rebate and comes with a cooler, and can reuse my RAM. Which do you think is the better option? 98% of the time the server is steaming to 1 client, the HTPC connected to the 4K TV, but it could possibly be steaming to up to 4 clients, only one 4K TV(as of right now anyway lol).
