Its been years since I built a computer, eg ATA 133 was new......
Looking to put together a Media storage / Server for home, for a few laptops & HTPCs (XBMC) + VPN
Looking to consolidate data from all the PCs around the house.
Been playing with Win 2012 Server Essentials lately so will give that a try for a start.
Need about 4TB+ of space and would like redundancy as backing up 4TB of non critical data is costly (thinking RAID5)
Would like to get thoughts on the below (cost vs performance)
