That totals for: $622.94
and that's without the PSU and memory. It's little bit above my budget, so I am asking for your help, where to cut down costs, and which PSU and memory to choose in order to suit my needs which are illustrated in picture above.
The storage will be set in RAID 5, and as now I'm only buying 3 2tb drives, I want to have option to purchase extra when these fill up. I'm not sure about my choice of motherboard as maybe there could be cheaper alternatives, and about i3 processor, do I really need it or I could get some cheaper one?
What else do I need to add extra to suit my needs? The documents I am working are mostly photoshop/illustrator based, so heavy files with constant saving. It would be nice to access the server to set the downloads, as it will be used as a leech/seed box and will be on 24/7.
P.S This is my first build and I have very little to none experience with ordering hardware for computers. Sorry for my noobiness.
Thanks for your reply. I didn't mention that I am planning to use FreeNAS and it requires a lot more RAM than this box have. And on the reviews I found out that many people are disappointed with speed. Anyways, I know that I want to build my own machine. I can upgrade the individual parts later on, and I'm not quite interested in premade nas boxes.
