    1 android phone
    1 android tablet

    1 one the computer is going to be always connected to tor

    Here the hardware i've currently selected :
    Case: Fractal Design Define Mini C
    Power supply: Seasonic S12II-430W
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-A320M-H
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8Go (1x8Go) DDR4 2400MHz C14 XMP 2.0
    SSD: Crucial CT120BX500SSD1 SSD Interne BX500

    Will it be part of the interior decoration ?

    Not for making any publicity, but this SG-1100 will do the job just fine.

    Btw : you forgot an important part : the UPS.

    Do you need to use the full 100Mbps over OpenVPN?

    What CPU do plan to use?

    That does seem over powered though. The SG-1100 or SG-3100 would likely be fine there.
