Building a personal Server... Need input
I'm working out some specs for a server for my home.
I've been running numbers for a while now and just can't come down on anything solid, so I'm asking you all what you think might work best.
This is what I would like from the machine.
Dual processor (physicial), 4gb+ memory
Mirror primary hard drive 80GB+
standard PCI 1 or 2 ports.
Built in RAID would be nice, but I'm only using Raid 5 for this, so unless something has this, I'm not really interested outside the primary drives.
integrated GB nic
I'm also running specs for a x12 SATA RAID 5 controller and drives, but am having a hard time find the right case for that. if anyone has any thoughts on that, that would be helpfull.
Will be running Windows 2003 server. Wouldn't mind doing 64bit either...
any info you can throw my way would be helpfull.
