I would probably say one of the E3 xeons without info.
However are you planning on doing any plex transcoding? Or just direct play?

Freenas uses ram as a cache for writes, ecc reduces risk of corruption due to memory errors, it is highly recommended if possible, but not required. If you are planning on transcoding a faster processor would be recommended, the rough calculation is about 2k passmark per transcode running (plus storage overhead).

Edit: higher for 4k transcode
