I have been wanting to build a low powered fileserver with a ton of storage for some time. Hopefully soon I will build the new machine with the following parts:
- Gigabyte GA-D510UD £68.26 (1.6 dual core atom)
- 2gb of DDR 2 ram. £29
- 3x 1TB Sata II drives. £132
- 4u case. £48
- 8gb CF card for OS. £15
Plus some stuff I already have.
- IDE to CF card reader.
- Sata cables.
I will post more details when I order the parts I will be using CentOS 5.5 and use software raid to create a Raid 5!
