Windows Home Server Build

I've been researching this for a while and I am about to start buying the parts for a whs build. Being that this is my first server build, I am looking for advice and recommendations on the parts that I have picked out. This is my first amd build so any advice respective to that is also appreciated.

Antec earthwatts EA380 380W

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 Brisbane 2.7GHz

ASUS M3A76-CM AM2+/AM2 AMD 760G Micro ATX

Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s


Thermaltake LANBOX Lite

I all ready have the OS.

The cost is $280 before hard drives. I am planning on buying 1x western digital 1tb plus i have two 500 wd's at home right now so that would be 1 tb redundant and then expanding as required. The case has 3 3.5 bays and 2 5.25, I am going to get the drive adapters for the future hd's.

Planning on using the server to stream video plus backup 2 pc's plus web server if isp allows.

also, the mobo specs page on newegg just lists the lan adapter. I tried googling and it looks like its gig ethernet. Can anyone confirm that?

Thanks for looking!
