I am planning to install Windows Home Server on it in order to use the server as a networked backup store for other desktops/laptops we have. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

The last thing you want is a bad PSU killing your back ups. 2. Everything else looks good. Just get a single 2GB RAM stick. 3. I haven't used Home Server extensively, so I don't know how much CPU power it needs, but you may be better off with a cheap AMD CPU and board compared to an Atom. 4. Again, depending on your skill level, consider running Linux distro (ie FreeNAS,etc). m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
