Hello and welcome.  I haven't used any of those components, but you ought to be fine.  I'd recommend looking at larger hard drives, you should be able to get a better price per TB.  The CPU you've selected should be able to handle Plex and some transcoding, but it's not a monster so hopefully you've planned that out.

Thank you @tdallen I will definitely consider the cpu. Do you have any hard drives you would recommend? I usually use wd red but they were a little pricey, but I didn't check the higher TB ones.

The 4TB drives tend to have a better cost per TB than the 3's, and the 8TB drives better still (especially the Seagate Archive drives).  If I were building a new server I'd use a WD Red or HGST for parity and Archive drives for data (and folks are using the Archive drives  successfully for parity, too).
