Hey everyone. Long time no post.
I am looking to build a home server primarily for data backup (files, pictures, music). I will probably stream music to various computers around the house. Might try some streaming video to the tivo or xbox, but not sure yet.
I have Windows Home Server already but I don't have any hardware. Was wondering if anyone has built one lately or has any ideas on hardware to buy. I don't need a monitor or keyboard or anything like that, just the computer.
I am thinking about 2 1tb hard drives mirroring each other. Don't need a video card or soundcard - can be on on board. But would like low power hard drives and PSU.
I have typically build AMDs, but typically they ran hotter so I figured they use more power but I don't know.
