Hi Michael -
The larger power supply is if you wish to install a GPU card into one of the PCIe slots in the QNAP. This is for transcoding. You will not use this, so you can go with the default power supply.

This QNAP does not have 5GbE ports.
This is the page for the QNAP model you have mentioned -
these are four 1G ports. You will get a maximum speed of 100 MB/sec when connected to one of these 1G ports.
For professional video editing, you should without question be using a 10G card like the QNAP
QXG-10G1T, which is $89 inside this QNAP. This will give you dramatically faster performance.

With all of that said - you are making quite the assumption about the Micron ION SSD's. They are not supported by QNAP, and I certainly have never used them -
this is the supported SSD page -

The largest supported SSD's are 4TB, from companies like Samsung (like the EVO 860 series).

In general, I would never recommend a 6 bay QNAP. You should always be using an 8 drive system, like a QNAP TVS-872XT (which already has the 10G port built in). You may say "well, the SSD's will be much faster than 7200 RPM SATA drives". This is true, but I cannot comment with experience on a 4 drive SSD system - and CERTAINLY not with the Micron SSD's which are not supported. I would hate to see you spend all this money, and have a non working product.
