    I would imagine. 2 cams is not much load. Intel says that cpu has quicksync so I wouldn't be scared to try it. In fact I'm thinking over kill, but @fenderman should be along to publicly shame me if Im wrong.

    It will work no problem...note that most pc's with that processor are mini/ultra slim units that cannot house a full 3.5 drive.

    Thanks for replies.

    @fenderman. the drive size; does that disqualify its capability to do the job?

    Unless I have gone blind, you didn't list the drive size. :D

    depends on how you want to use it...I always recommend recording to an internal drive and having the OS and blue iris on an ssd..

    Hi Fenderman; to what degree? Is it unworkable or just preferable to use an internal drive ?

    You are completely right but I would expect that from a security cam guy. Observation is an important priority :)

    i just notice folks have issues with those types of setups...
    the difference in price to get a full tower or even a sff that support a 2.5 for ssd and a single 3.5 is negligible..this way you can record locally on the tower/sff then if you wish also clone the cameras and record to the nas...

    Ok, thanks for reply.
    I emailed Blue Iris support and others may find this helpful. Of course this info is in support of the answers I have received here.
    Its a supplement
    They said "That processor itself is fine. Just be aware of how much you are attempting to process, and moderate this until the CPU performance is at a reasonable level.

    And the number of cameras would not be the metric you want to use, but rather the overall MP/s ... megapixels/second."

    They also do a 15 day free use of the software. I can include the link if that is permissable.

    Ive got the cams but am doubtful how I should proceed. I can see there are various options.

    Blu Iris, nvr, smart pss other software..... sd cards....

    My wants are to record and monitor the 2 cams outputs with continuous recording and motion detection. To be able to copy any footage excerpts to other storage media. I dont want to keep recorded footage for longer than 7 days.

    To easily use my win10pc and android smartphone and or ipad for this monitoring

    Which is my simplest and best route ?
