Im wondering what the benefit to.installing the plex plugin directly to my unraid server would be over installing media server on my.htpc and toward the TOwer folders

Your htpc wouldn't need to be on whenever you wanted to use plex. So if you were out and about and wanted to stream media to your phone, your htpc could be asleep (I'm assuming you leave your unraid server on 24/7). Keep in mind that the transcoding done by plex media server is very CPU intensive.
