RE: Computer for streaming video- what's impoirtant?

Thanks for the response... I still haven't pulled the trigger here.

Whats the benefit of transcoding. Not sure what it even is??

I'll be streaming off the various services and watching movies saved on a home NAS.

The computers I'm watching are all I7-6700 variants. I think they are old enough to hit the surplus market in high numbers, but not too old to be obsolete for a while. The trick is to find one that has SSD and a video card.
