Allow me to share with you these links where the requirements of a plex server are explained:

By checking that information and reviewing the Specifications of the https://ark.intel.com/products/130392/Intel-NUC-Kit-NUC7i7DNKE Intel® NUC7i7DNKE, It reaches the requirements to be a plex server. Please take into consideration that the NUC is intended for home use and not as a server so, we recommend using server hardware for this purpose.
