I'm considering consolidating all my tuners into 1 pc and use WHS and dvblink to serve my two htpcs.

My question is what would I need in way of a mobo and cpu to run the following:

3 satellite tuner PCI cards
2 Hauppauge 2250

I'm planning to use current copy of whs 2011 with flexraid. I have 4 3tb HDD and will be adding more HDD in the future (this is my current server).

This server is currently hosting my plex server and could potentially host my mediabrowser server in the future.

I'm just unsure where to upgrade and spend money. Does the server, which will have all of the tuners, need a good mobo and cpu or is that handled on the client end?

Any feedback would be appreciated.
