I'm planning on building a new gaming PC later this year, and I'm going to use my current PC as a NAS/streaming/downloading, etc. system. I was wondering if there is a way to open a magnet link for a torrent on the gaming PC and have it download in a client on the NAS?

Sorry if this is the wrong section.

uTorrent (and I assume other p2p software aswell) can 'look' for folders from which to download torrents from when new .torrent files are added.
When you download .torrent files using your pc, save it to any folder and make sure to have uTorrent look in that specific folder from the NAS and it will automatically add them.

Here's a tutorial for auto adding from your dropbox, just to show the method how that works.
