I am thinking about buying a T430 dual socket server for my NAS, Plex, and VM needs. The server details are below. Is there anything I should add or remove? Dell's site mentions a lot of options I don't know about. For instance I couldn't select having ESXi 6.5 installed due to the raid options I selected. But it won't let me select no raid.

 

Intel® Xeon® E5-2630L v4 1.8GHz,25M Cache,8.0GT/s QPI,Turbo,HT,10C/20T (55W) Max Mem 2133MHz

16GB RDIMM, 2400MT/s, Dual Rank, x8 Data Width

RAID 1 for S130 Embedded SATA (2 SATA HDDs or SATA SSDs), S130, Software RAID (for Microsoft OS Only)

On-Board Broadcom 5720 Dual Port 1Gb LOM

Internal Dual SD Module with 2x 16GB SD Cards (to install ESXi on)

Single, Hot-plug Power Supply (1+0), 1100W

 

 

I am waffling a little bit between a true server, an i7 with ESXi, or Synology 1817+.

You need to go with the h330 adapter.  The s130 does not have a vm driver for VMware.
