PC Build for Server - Advice Please!

  Nick Gilbert 20:32 21 Sep 2018

Hi, Here’s a quick overview of what we are trying to achieve…

I am looking for a PC build which will act as our server for a new bidding system to be used at fundraising events.

We run auctions at fundraising events which are held at hotels. We are looking to display up to 100 tablets for guests to view our website (pre-loaded on the devices by us). The website contains live bidding information, which continually changes and should be updated across all devices in real-time.

We are looking for a PC built that will be the server that runs this system.

It needs to be reliable since it is powering a server that will have 100 devices connected at once. Real-time speed is important.

Couple of guys have given me slight guidance on a pc build - here it is:

Is this board still active? Still haven't had a response:-(

I've been working with my friend on putting together a better build based on those 2 above. We have come together with the following build.

Can someone please let me know thoughts? Whether to change anything in the above or whether it is good as it is?

Also, to make sure it is all compatible. Thank you in advance for any advice anyone can offer!
