Bang for buck database server Tags: New Build Servers Database Systems Last response: March 18, 2011 7:59 PM in Systems Share excavator March 18, 2011 3:36:06 PM I'd like to build a server to house my companies various databases. Nothing intense...just basic word processing/spreadsheet softwares. I mostly want the best bang for my buck--I don't want to spend money on something I really don't need (ie. video card). I have a monitor & windows 7 installations already. If i5-2500k is the best dollar for dollar, then even if it's overkill, I'll pick it up. I'd prefer Intel. I'd like a raid 1 for disk redundancy. I'm thinking 2x 1TB Samsung F3's. Any feedback would be great. Thanks!
