Depends on use. As a file server, it's very good. Plex transcoding should be pretty decent as well.

Look at the Synology CPU lineup here: What kind of CPU does my NAS have

You can get a sense of how XPEnology may perform based on the specs of the product closest to your system.

 

10Gbe makes a significant difference in performance, which is not an option for all but the most recent Synology products, but almost always an option for an XPEnology system.

You wont need the video card anymore so thats a help.  However, the motherboard only has two SATA connections, so if you want to run more than 2 HDDs, you'll need an add-on card or replace the motherboard with something else.

 

I have a NAS running an i3-4160 which is a touch faster, and its definitely capable of far more than I throw at it using Xpenology
