I'm starting on my first build and its going to be a home server. Mostly media, supporting a couple of laptops, couple of Apple TVs, etc. I want it to handle all of our media storage and would also like it to be able to do all of my ripping/transcoding of DVDs or CDs.
I'm shopping at Newegg.
I have an i5 650 that's been sitting on my shelf for over a year so I plan to use that.
I've got a WD Black 750GB that I might use as a system drive, it's also been sitting on a shelf.
I need a case and a PSU but have no idea on those two items. The case doesn't need to be fancy or small, but I want to be able to expand to at least four, maybe six, hard drives. The server will live in a closet in my basement; the closet is relatively small and enclosed, but it always stays pretty cool down there.
