So, I have about $570 to spend today (long story), and I'm looking to setup a NAS of sorts to steam movies/music to my PS3 via PS3 Media Server. Here are my options:
1) Re-purpose my parents older Dell tower (Core 2 Duo) and use as 'NAS'/torrent downloader, and buy HDD's with the $570.
2) Purchase a Synology 212j, and (2) 2TB drives
3) Wait for upcoming upgrade at my office, and utilize the Poweredge 840, or T100 server as NAS/etc... And, not spend the $570.
I know there are significant differences between these three setups.. But, I think that using my parents old computer will make the most sense, right?
