That should be fine.  Running Kodi as well should be fine.  My massive
MythTV database works well in just 8 Gibytes of RAM and an 8 year old
quad core AMD.  You can use htop to see how much RAM and swap space is
being used and how much CPU.  But you should check and make sure that
you have not been sold hard drives that are shingled - that causes
endless problems if you use them like normal drives.
