Need help to buy a nuc

Hi , im trying to build a Perfect PLEX server, i would like the best cpu the nuc as to offer because it will be doing some HW Transcoding.

This nuc will have gbit up/down

The plex content will be connected Via NAS Network Storage and also Netdrive 3 ( google drive )

i was looking at

/message/537203# 537203 NUC8i7HVK

But i think the AMD video card might be a little over kill , i have a gaming PC already i dont need a big video card on this nuc. also willing to wait later this summer for new nuc to come out but it looks like it's only the VR version's witch again would be overkill.

I want the nuc to have M2 im planing to run the OS on M2 Samsung 960 pro

probably 16 gig of ram?

Can anyone share some help on there build and spec this is mainly for streaming not gaming but if i need to have the video card to get the best CPU then that's fine.

thank you !!
