Well, from my understanding Plex transcodes on the fly. There is no way it will keep up at Blu-Ray quality, no matter what processor you have. So, it will most likely give you an SD picture, if I understand correctly.
There are other channels out there besides plex, but they don't do transcoding on the fly. I use one called Roksbox, but you have to have everything in a Roku compatible format (basically a .h264 mp4). So, if you have ISO rips, I don't think you will be happy and would be better off with another product.
The Roku is meant to get stuff off the internet and display it - the home server stuff, while awesome and I use it, it is bending what the box can do.
Having said that, I do have my own "movie channel" set up, all our family photos, tons of mp3's, and I even have a private channel to watch my mythtv server so I watch tv recorded off the air, all on my roku.
