Re: What are your system specs?
Why is this in the I/O devices section? o.0
Current operational machines-
Dell Precision Workstation 360
Intel Pentium 4 EE 3.8Ghz
4*1GB DDR2-533 ECC
XFX 8600GT 512MB GPU
1x 500GB Seagate HDD
1x 120GB Seagate HDD
AMD Sempron 145
1x 500GB WD Black
Temporary Media Server
4*4GB DDR3-1333 Crucial Tracers
1x 200GB WD Caviar Black (OS/Software)
2x 1TB WD Greens (Raid 0, media drive...)
1x 2TB WD Black (Weekly backup drive for the WD Green array...)
2x 500GB WD Black (Raid1, contains a fresh backup for all machines in the house, as well as all my cd images for various products)
2x2TB WD Blacks (RAID0, will become main array for media soonish, mostly setup for testing right now, till new server is built/finished)
650w OCZ ZX PSU, or is it a ZS.... Too lazy to look
Cheap Blu-Ray drive
MSI 8800GT 512MB GPU
Yea... You can kinda tell I haven't bothered to keep track of what hard ware is in what for the most part, nor really care these days... Too annoyed trying to keep stuff all working right with limited funds. Would be running my 965BE instead of this dell, but, well, things are a PITA right now XD Gotta save up for a half decent case, and a PSU to get that thing online again.
No one had better be hating on the 965BE, good processors IMO, more than enough for most, and they can be found some-what cheaply still.
Future media server build-
Mobo: SuperMicro X9DAi
RAM: 16*2GB Kingston DDR3-1600 ECC
CPU: 2* Xeon E-2603
HDD: 10x 2TB WD Blacks to start - will buy SAS controller and additional drives as needed
Case: Unknown at this point, motherboard is a non-standard format, uses a version of E-ATX from Super Micro.
PSU: Unknown as well... Still planning the build -.-
GPU: Something very cheap and low end since it's just a server
NIC: Looking at a few Intel cards that have 4x 1Gbit ports so I can do teaming since the bandwidth demand will be high.
^^^- That build is what's taking up all my money, already have the board ordered, just waiting on money for everything else, slowly, but surely. Still can't get over the cost of the drives...
