This is the hardware list that I have used to build my own “servers”. Please note that this is all consumer-grade hardware, but is perfect for my setup: Less power, noise, and heat. Keep in mind that I have bought/built two of these machines. They are slightly different, but they both have AMD CPUs, one is a Ryzen and the other is an FX. Both have 8vCPUs, 32GB Memory, 2TBs HD space.
The below list is a guide and I will update the list as they become unavailable.
You can start with 1 machine, but to get the most out of all the features, I highly recommend getting 3 machines. I only have 2, but will be working to get another built.
