First, sorry for creating a new thread for my first post. I've read the forums for a while, but haven't had a need to register until now.
I'm wanting to get a file server for my media (and other) files. Eventually I want to make it a RAID-5 machine (with maybe a simple MythTV backend), but for now I just care about future-proofing. I've picked out the following parts and would like to buy it today. I've never built a full PC, though (I've made a few from barebones), so I'm pretty nervous about purchasing it.
Could someone verify that these will all be compatible with each other? Am I missing something huge?
It will primarily be headless, so I'm just going to use the onboard video. It will be wired ethernet, so no WiFi card's needed. I just want to double-check that the parts will all work with each other.
I looked over your parts, checked and made sure the motherboard will support your CPU and RAM. According to the motherboards website everything you want is supported. Your PSU has plenty of power for a system like that.
