    I left my PC on for years as a music a plex server.

    I love Plex. I don't have a NAS here as I don't have much media but I use it all the time and run it from a cheap gigabyte brix PC. Simple.

    I'd love to get a NAS later on but I just find the more media I add the more I remove as well.

    Mine is an overclocked gaming PC I've had for a while and need the overclock for Dolphin etc. so feel a bit dubious about leaving it on all the time.

    Gaming PC's also typically aren't power efficient, so apart from wear and tear you are increasing your electricity bills. My old setup was a x99 5930K on a 1000w Super Flower PSU. Even though it was a Titanium rated PSU the components still weren't efficient to leave running all the time.

    Unless you were running multiple graphic cards, that PSU was grossly oversized. My Ryzen 3900 and RTX 2080 doesn't go past 400W at full load.

    My original intention was to go for an X99 dual 980Ti setup, where Nvidia were recommending 850w for a 'normal' build with more for overclocking etc. The X99 platform did need more watts than the mainstream CPUs even before overclocking and I was also running 3 HDDs, 2 optical drives, Creative ZxR, network card, watercooling and case lighting. So I wanted the headroom. In the end I never did go for the second Ti, but instead upgraded to a Nvidia 1080 in which needed less power. But I didn't want to rip out the PSU so I stuck with it. Sold it late last year I still got over half what I paid for it back. Beautiful PSU.

    Although my point was more that these NAS units are super efficient when it comes to energy use and therefore will consumes much, much less electricity than a desktop PC (which can obviously vary).
