I have this exciting bit of software and am in the process of planning to build a box to run this on.
I'm thinking a lower spec intel dual core on a mobo with 4 x sata and a tower with a 400w psu
Reading a thread on homeserverhacks.com I see a push to up the mem to 2 gig away from the reccomended 512mb - has anyone here done this in a box they have built and noticed any worth in doing so?
Also do you think a 400w psu is the way to go or could I get away with a 350w model, my plan is to have 2-4 sata internal drives and perhaps (if need be) expand out to 1-3 external drives via usb
Regarding the cpu, would a Celeron spec'd system work ok, or does it need to be pent4 or dual core ?
I'm excited about this os and looking forward to the remote login, mirrored folders, media sharing opportunites it affords.
I can't understand why there are not more posts on the homeserverhacks site about building your own box... this site seems fixated on the HP box and the oragami you have to perform to mod it :-)
I'll keep you posted on my progress and thanks for any feedback, advice you have for me..
