Building a new PC and turning the current one into a server
I currently have a desktop i built with an Athlon 64 X2 5200+ processor at 2.8 gig, 4 gig of ram, 300 gig hdd, 512 meg EVGA 8600GT video card.
I am thinking about dropping a terabyte drive into this comp and replacing the video card with something older and using it as a media and storage server. But here are my questions.
I'd like to use a ThermalTake LANBOX for the new comp I am building. The form factor is microATX which I have never delt with. What motherboard should I go with for this build? I'd like to go with an intel 45nm proc and 4 gigs or ram with this build also. The board is the only thing that worries me as I haven't done a microATX build.
I have read the thermaltake LANBOX will take a regular sized PSU, are the ATX and microATX power connectors the same?
