Ok so I probably over did it… and should have built one with new hardware… but I didn’t cuz I’m dumb.
I got a T1700 for cheap as I was thinking that just OMV or FreeNAS would be it for me. However, I say that for what I wanted to do it seems like I would outgrow it really quick (I should had asked everyone first but w/e). So I also got a T7600 that seems like it will do me just fine for a long time.
Dell Precision T7600
2xIntel Xeon E5-2620
2xNvidia Quadro k2000 Graphics Cards
4x4Gb ECC ram
1x3Tb Seagate Hard Drive
And for the full experience:
2x6Tb HGST Ultrastar Renewed - $216
Meme Stickers - $15
Still waiting on both of them in the mail.
Thought I would post this now as I get ready and see what ya’ll think.
I plan on using the T7600 with Proxmox to make VMs so that I can do everything I want on one machine and keep track of all of it easily.
What I want it to do:
Deepfake Meme rendering
AI box (pocket sphinx or some such local hosted voice assistant)
Hass io (maybe)
Steam Cache (maybe)
T1700 Debian 10, Docker
