But once again, you don't need a monster CPU or GPU. You don't even need a lot of memory. The GPU will not be used for anything. The CPU will spend most of its time waiting for I/O to complete. A faster CPU will just have more/faster cores sitting around doing nothing. You may want a better CPU for other things in case you plan to use the computer for something else later on.
I haven't ripped a DVD in ages. But as a quick test, I have and old version of DVD Fab ripping a DVD right now on an 8 year old Intel i5 2500K system. It's showing about 6 percent CPU usage and the DVDFab process is only using about 230 MB of memory. A second test using DVD Decrypter shows only 1 or 2 percent CPU usage and is only using 30 MB of memory.

As for your NAS, 48TB is a good amount, but it will fill up quicker than you think. You don't want to have to re-rip your discs like I did. On the conservative side, you're looking at ~30TB for your discs (6GB/DVD * 1200 discs, 35GB/Blu-Ray * 500 discs, 50GB/UHD * 100 discs). I swapped out almost all my 4TB drives to 8TB+ drives a couple of years ago because I realized it wouold be more cost effective than buying more multi-bay enclosures.
Plus be sure to have at least one backup, two would be better of everything on another set of drives or Cloud. RAID in any form isn't a backup solution. In addition to my goof-up of deleting both the primary and backup of my rips, I've also (several times), knocked my 8TB external drive off the desktop, once immediately after I completed the transfer! One the main reasons I now keep my bare drives in multi-bay enclosures.

On my I7 Kaby Lake system, I ripped/remuxed both the DVD and Blu-Ray of Christoper Robin (movie only) with MakeMKV. The CPU and RAM usage were virtually identical. AFAIK, MakeMKV is single-threaded only.
CPU - ~4% average usage, 5.8% peak
RAM ~400MB (DVD)
So even if UHD ripping doubled the CPU usage, it would still be no strain whatsoever on virtually any system. Reference my post on Page 1 on this thread in which the DVD rip/remux speed on my AMD A6 laptop was virtually identical as on this system. Also note that despite the Blu-Ray being nearly 5x larger (32GB vs 6.2GB), the rip/remux time only doubled due to the higher read speed of the Blu-Ray (20MB/s max vs 8.2MB/s max).
MakeMKV's forum sells drives that come already flashed with the right firmware. They are supposed to work with any UHD Blu-ray ripping software. He monitors this thread for requests: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=17829Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord

Hi guys, finally Iíve found a great deal with an i7 4790k SSD 240Go 16Go RAM 1To hard drive and a GTX 660 for only 350Ä 1 year warranty !!!
And as recommended by Usually_quiet, Iíve ordered an LG WH16NS60 at 155Ä
With the reader buit in with the PC, it tooks me 48mn for 44Go to have an ISO of a BR with DVDFab.
Now Iíve to install the new UHD LG and test.
