Purchase TS-664 or TVS-h674

Hello, all I am at a crossroads regarding which NAS to purchase. Yes, I know both are completely different but the price $700 compared to $1600 for i3 and $1900 for the i5 version for the TVS-h674 I am wonder will ever take advantage of it. I have a friend that has an older model TVS that uses ZFS it is very nice. I want a six-bay NAS for flex ability. I have six Hard drives ready for use. The following is how I am going to use it for home use only. I have five computers one of them is a MAC. I have two 1TB NVMe drivers that I use and if go with the TS-664 I will be using a maximum of 16GB of ram and for the TVS I will use 32GB of ram. The NAS will be used for. I
1. Backups
2. Plex Media Server [HD and 4K movies and home movies, music, collection]
3. One or two VM'S ubuntu etc not at the same time. (light use)
4. One or two containers not running at the same time. (Setup Minecraft server for grandson)
5. Photo Editing using lightroom.

I love ZFS system but I am not sure the $1000 will be worth it. So will TS-664 be ok or save up for TVS-h674? I don't want to purchase TVS if I am not going to take full advantage of it. I would like to here from others.
TS-664 could handle local 4K streaming in Plex, backups, virtual machines and other things. But you will notice a big difference with VMs. Just like you would never install Windows on Celeron because of the performance- you would not really want that VM on the NAS like this.
Also when you do use it for all of these things at the same time, Celeron will not cope well with this. If you do one thing at a time it will be OK.
My choice would be i5 or minimum i3 based NAS.

I hope this helps.
