What setup do you have??

Hi all, this may well be in the wrong forum, but not sure where to post.

Just wondering was setup of computers people have. I don't just mean single systems. But the whole network people have in their homes.
Trying to plan what what I want slowly build up to.
My current plan is to have the following:
My main system for games with a single raid 0 in it.
secondary computer next to main computer - used for everything else while gaming.
3rd computer in another room used as general computer and intergrated into hifi etc. media computer
1 NAS box with Raid 1 to store all media and non program files and accessable for all other computers.
Not sure how I would put a backup into this system.
Thinking of adding a second NAS box into system as a backup of the first.
All running across a gigabit switch.
All documents, media etc. will all be held on the NAS. Obiously all programs will be installed on their respective computers, but everything else, anything I want to keep will be on the NAS.
But then I need a realiabe way to backup the NAS.
Any suggestions???
Also what setups do other people have?
Cheers

More about what setup have
  1. Here are all of my systems...

    Main System:

    Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (OC'ed to 3.2Ghz, 400FSB x 8 )
    4GB OCZ DDR2-800
    ATI X1900GT
    2 x 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 SATAII (RAID 0), 300GB Maxtor SATAII, 200GB Seagate 7200.9 SATAII
    Plextor PX-755SA DVD Burner (SATA)
    Aerocool Zerodba 500W
    Logitech Headset
    Acer AL1716BBD, Samsung 930BF

    2GB DDR 400
    Nvidia Geforce 5600XT
    200GB Seagate 7200.9 SATAII
    LG DRD-8160B
    i-Cute 400W ATX
    Asus P5P800 Integrated

    SETI@Home Box 1:

    Intel D850GB
    Intel Pentium 4 1.5Ghz
    2GB RamBus RD PC800
    ATI Radeon 9250
    40GB Seagate ATA100
    LG GCR-8520B, LG GCE-8160B

    LG DRD-8160B
    i-Cute 400W ATX

    As for a NAS solution.... try finding one that can hold 3 or more drives and supports RAID 5, instead of having 2 and trying to backup one NAS box to the other.

    Generic Intel Motherboard
    External SCSI Adapter
    120GB IDE Hard Drive
    DVD-R/RW Burner
    512MB DDR RAM
  11. My network is cable, hooked up to a gigabit LAN (a D-Link Gaming router the WGL-4300 with wireless encrypted by WEP). Wireless is only used for the HTPC, the other machines get the cord for speed.

    Main system:
    Thermaltake Kandalf case w/plenty of blue LED lighting
    FX-60 socket 939 processor w/ Zalman CNPS9700 LED cooler
    A8N32-SLI Deluxe mobo
    (Yet to buy vid card(s), waiting on $ and AMD...)
    2 Gigs of XMS3200C2 DDR@suggested speeds (I'd have to check, I forget)
    2-DVD burners and a DVD-Rom
    150GB Raptor (this PC will probably eventually be a big file server though when I upgrade)
    Enermax Liberty 620w (may require an upgrade depending on vid cards)
    Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty SC
    Logitech Z-5300's (THX 5.1)
    Blue LED Razer Copperhead
    G15 Keyboard
    Samsung 215TW monitor (21.5" WS)
    Everything on this system is black w/blue LED and it matches, I love it.

    LAN Party/Light gaming system:
    Aspire X-Qpack case, black w/windows
    FX-55 socket 939 processor
    A8N-VM CSM mobo
    Sapphire X1950 GT
    2Gigs of Corsair XMS3200 DDR
    500w Enermax Liberty PSU
    Samsung 204B monitor (20")
    Logitech X-530 5.1 speakers
    Razer Copperhead mouse
    Black Dell keyboard
    Purple UV fans and lights with green UV reactive cables (needs some more work, the PSU is partially modded but I ran out of materials and patience hehe)

    HTPC:
    P4 2.2ghz sock478
    ASRock P4VM890 (has a PCI-E slot tho, yay!)
    DVD burner
    2 WD Caviars 8mb 160gig in Raid-1
    MinMaw (nMedia) HTPC-400B case
    Ultra PSU - 500w
    2X 256mb PC2700 ram
    Wireless-G NIC
    Windows XP MCE

    This used to be a crappier Dell...
    It's used with my 55" Mitsubishi tv
    Yet to buy for HTPC:
    Blu-Ray/HD-DVD drive
    X1650XT w/ HDCP vid card
    Good music sound cards
    MCE remote kit
    2-TV tuner cards
    Good HD decoder software/etc

    Currently, this is just a music backup/server although I have a fanless cooler ready to go on the vid card. The loudest thing in it is an 80mm case fan which I aim to silence...

    I have a 17" CRT Dell monitor I don't use, and an all-in-one printer. My Xbox 360 (which will later be used on an LCD tv perhaps as a media center extender or something) shares my 215TW monitor. It's great because I can just hit source on my monitor and go from checking my mail on my PC to playing XBox, and my GF can use the tv. Someday I'd like to have a rackmount setup instead to house the systems and just run cables to "workstations." It's an investment, but it'd be cool to have all the PC's out of the way and zero noise where I'm working (playing) :-)

  18. It's funny how most of us have really high-end machines and then absolute clunkers kicking around too.....usually for the wife/kids so they don't touch our hotrods LMAO ;)
  19. Damn straight! I am even thinking about modding a fingerprint scanner into my case so you can't turn it on without my fingerprint. I have EXPLICITLY told everyone that comes in to my house to not touch my computer. But one of my brother's smartass friends went on some porn sites and got a Trojan because I don't have ANY security software and ended up getting punched in the face.
  20. No security software?!? Oh the shame...........

    That should wise ya up ;) Get something, get anything, but don't let it slide. Ad-Aware is freeware. AVG. Kapersky. Zone alarm. Router. Something.........
  21. Yeah, I was thinking about just getting a physical firewall.

    Gaming Rig uses DVI to Viewsonic 22" 1680x1050 Widescreen. General Use uses DVI to VGA converter to analog input on the same monitor and VGA output to BenQ MP610 Projector. When the HTPC rig is complete, we'll go DVI-HDMI to an HDTV and the VGA out to the projector. The Gaming rig will get the 22" Widescreen by itself and the General purpose will get my old 19" 1280x1024 LCD.

    Biometric security. WooT! Yeah, I tell my gf to ask me before she installs anything on the computers...but does she listen? No. Next thing I know I have bars on my explorer and the computer is crashing randomly. I don't use virus software either. (I can 9/10 times manually find and remove a virus). I figure if someone can get past my firewalls, and if she's dumb enough to open stupid emails...then she can live with the downtime. Plus, it's always an excuse to buy better hardware. Virus = hardware malfunction. Remember that boys! :-)

    Oh, and I very much dislike you people with your E6600's and higher and your 8800GTX's...:-P Yes, it's jealousy. Soon we'll all be on 8cores and never use them though. I can't wait to not have to hear about folding at home any more...
  27. Just to make sure, you saw how I added not one, but TWO, Western Digital Raptor X HDDs? Good, just checking.
  28. Hi guys this is my first post \o/ Ive been reading the forums here for a long time and decided to stop being a lurker :) Anyways my setup is in the sig. Any comments are welcome. Enjoy!!

  30. Oh, it is my friend, it is.

    I can't say I'm jealous...
    For one, I have a raptor X and a plain old raptor. I had them in Raid-0 and didn't see much benefit from it. A single drive is plenty fast enough for most applications. Having two raided might've shaved a half a second off an Olivion game save load. I put one in each of my socket 939 AMD FX CPU comps. In fact, I wish I hadn't bought raptors at all. :roll:

    Secondly, the speed of raptors is already outdated (just like Blu-Ray and HD-DVD are rather crappy already out-dated technologies as well). Solid state disks are the new king of storage, and very soon they'll be within financial reach, not to mention also outdated. HD-DVD/Blu-Ray will soon be replaced by bio or atomic related storage technologies that are already in the works and well on the way to being produced.
  32. Care to sell your Raptor X?

    Oh, it is my friend, it is.


    I've got 2 320 GB 7200 RPM drives in raid 0 and thats damn fast (beats a single raptor) so i can't begin to dream of how fast 2 raptors in raid 0 is

    I ran HD Tach...

    Max sustained transfer rate ~ 130 MB/s
    average transfer rate 111 MB/s
    Burst (cache) transfer rate 279 MB/s

    Care to share your benchmark, PROOF? I'm curious!
  36. I just bought a third one 5 minutes ago.
    check the sig.
  37. can you do raid 0 on more than 2 disks?
  38. Up to 11.

    (I think it is 11)
  39. Check my video below.

    Not for a price you'd be willing to buy it for. Currently the model I have is going for just over $200. Like I said though, they'll soon be outdated...so maybe in a year if hybrid drives are cheap enough I'll be more than willing to part with it.
