Looking for hardware advice for self-hosting with a Mini PC
Looking for a bit of advice when it comes to hardware. I'm quite out of touch with hardware specs since the 90's, and when trying to compare all the various Intel and AMD processors and different models - can easily get lost with all the choice!
In short, I'm looking to host part of my project from home, as a residential IP is preferred. I'm leaning towards an AMD processor, with at least 6 cores and ideally a clock speed of 2.5Ghz or more. Will probably also need about 4GB of RAM and about a 25GB SSD.
I prefer a Mini PC as it's small and I can put it besides my router, tucked away. Fanless would be great but not required. Doesn't need a graphics card as I'll be running Ubuntu 20.04 and just using ssh to connect to the server.
Budget wise, the lower the better- I was hoping to get this box for around EUR 500 but I get that it could be more.
If anyone has an experience with getting hardware like this, could you let me know what you'd recommend and where to buy? I'm fine with waiting from AliExpress, etc, or Amazon etc.
