Homelab VM Server

Specs on my current Homelab - List of VMs and Links

The CPU, RAM and power supply are spares from an old gaming PC. I have found the Ryzen 1700 to be a great performer for VM tasks.

I got the motherboard, network card and graphics used off eBay. I was able to get a good price on all 3. All of the parts are "consumer grade" parts. At this time I don't have the need for enterprise gear. The system is administered remotely over ssh or RDP. If I need to use a keyboard and monitor, the system is next to my monitor, hooking it up isn't an issue. The price/performance of consumer hardware vs. enterprise software isn't there yet for me. Most enterprise servers available on eBay are too expensive/power hungry (usually using Intel's Ivy Bridge era Xeons) to make them worth it for my home lab. I get to test enterprise gear at work.
