This request pretty much falls within the title..........Workstation/Server
Looking to build a new machine.
A) Main home office PC.
B) Network storage for other PCs in house plus HTPC.
C) Develop some scheme for backup/recovery (in addition to cloud based).
D) 24/7 up-time.
I added up the used disk space of the various PCs and that is 224GB plus the 1.44TB
of the HTPC and growing.
Rosewill cabinet FBM-01
OCZ Vertex Plus-R2 60GB
Samsung 840 MDX controller 120GB
WD10EALS 1TB (02/2010) SATA3
WD20EARX 2TB (07/2012) SATA6
WD30EFRX 3TB (03/2013) SATA6
Yea, I had plans early on but never pulled the trigger. All of the storage drives are still in their sealed packages.
Since I have only built one PC in the last 30 years (HTPC 01/2013) with help from this site I figured I'll tap the resources again.
I prefer an Intel CPU....i3?...i5?
My HTPC used a Gigabyte Mboard (i3).
Stage one is "The Plan".
Stage two is the CPU and Mboard choice.
I eagerly await your thoughts and questions and recommendations.
