Build me a Media PC 2010
Jul 6, 2010, 6:52 AM
Hey im after a fairly budget media PC (storing and watching movies mainly)
Want to run 6 1TB HDD in RAID5 Array. (this is my main stipulation)
I use mainly Umart as my buying site
Im in Aus, if that makes any difference.
Dont need all the extra bits and bobs just the box and its contents.

G'day (evening anyway) mate!
(from a fellow aussie)
What sort of budget are you looking at?
Jul 6, 2010, 8:08 AM
including the $500 on storage, around $1000
The main issue im having atm is find a board that has 8 SATA ports and will run Raid 5 on 6 Drives, while still only using a cheaper intel Duel core with a 755 socket.

I'm no expert at media pcs etc, but maybe look at an i3 530 with its integrated graphics or AMD Athlon x3 4xx (440/445)
