I am about to buy the parts for my FlexRAID server and want to ensure I am on the right track. I already have an Intel Celeron G540 CPU so have decided to utilise that in an ASRock B75M R2.0 motherboard with 4gb of RAM and 6 1TB HDD's. apart from FlexRAID the server will run Sick beard, SABnzbd and MySQL for an XBMC database shared between 4 HTPC's.
Will the CPU be enough for my requirements and what do you think of the motherboard?
Also what size PSU will I need, l have a spare 300watt but I could also get my hands on a 400watt if necessary.
I also want to evenly share all data across all the data HDD's, is this possible with FlexRAID?
EDIT: I have been reading up on WHS 2011, is this a better option than Windows 7 as the OS?
