Unraid all in one gaming PC for 2 and server

This is a build I am doing to replace 2 out of date gaming computers and 3 really out-of-date servers with an all-in-one system using unraid and virtualization. In the end, this build ends up saving me a ton of money the cost of buying 5 whole new systems considering having to buy so many duplicate parts would have cost considerably more.

Aside from 2 gaming systems, it will run a Plex server, file storage server, video/audio encoding server, streaming server, and various other VM's for testing things and experimenting with Linux distros. And I want this to last for many many years so is probably a bit more power than I need now but will last me a long time.
