This forum doesn't move that fast, there is no reason to bump a thread that has only moved down 4 slots since yesterday's post. TY - nc

That's still an awfully powerful server! I'm not sure about using the embedded GPU for photo editing; transcoding sure, but it might lag a bit on photo editing, depending on how demanding your editing will be.

All!!

 

With this final post I am closing the thread.

I have included my final build list, below, and as someone pointed out - this is a very powerful server and I hope that it will do its job for a long time.

Now I am busy trying to really explore the best optioons on virtualization - (see my post under that are here in the forum)

 

Once again - Thank you so much for your time and effort in helping me out!
