The Supermicro X11SAE-F seems to be like what I need, however it uses
IDT 89HMPEB383 chip to provide a bridge for the PCI slot (due to the
lack of native chipset support). The X9SRH-7TF does have native support
but the asking price is 500USD which seems too much for an old board.
The H8SGL-F is ~300USD and seems a more reasonable choice. I also use my
existing box to transcode the recording to x265 format using Handbrake.
Is the Opteron 6380 CPU good enough for that?
