What type of CPU is recommended? There are some good deals out there on the older Core Duos and AMD X2/X3s. Is that overkill for a NAS server?

Thanks for the help!

I don' think that when building a NAS, you have to worry about the CPU too much. A decent dual core CPU is more than adequate. I also believe that 2 GIGs of RAM will do quite nicely.

The more inportant parts are the hard drives and the NIC speed. As usual, keeping the parts nice and cool is also beneficial.

Thanks for the reply! Any advantages Intel vs. AMD on power consumption? I'm thinking something along the lines of an E6300.
