I searched the forum a bit and only found hits from some pretty old threads on the Cinemar side and just a couple fairly old (2013-2016) hits on hardware discussions in general.
I'm looking to gather current thoughts and recommendations from anyone on minimum graphics hardware for running a combined myServer and Client to display ripped blu-ray and DVDs as well as Amazon Video. I just re-purposed a non-integrated graphics motherboard running an AMD FX4 quad core processor and 8Gb of RAM as my new myServer to replace a very old AMD Core2 Duo Win7 setup. The speed increase in my client touchscreens is huge and I'm finally embracing Windows 10 across all my hardware including myServer! However, in order to feed my theater client which runs on the same box as myServer I am now using an old Nvidia GTX 550 I had laying around which I'm sure is wasting a ton of power and also has a fan noise that could wake the dead. Does anyone have a recommendation for minimum graphics hardware and ideally low power hardware to display HD video streams for a dedicated client? My updated myServer is a 3U rackmount setup so full height cards are fine but I would prefer short depth.
Thanks for any feedback,
