  1. PS. I've heard that my internet will be the bottleneck, if anything. On this thread they say that SATA II speeds weren't fully utilized because of their internet connection. Do you think this is accurate?
  2. I'll use the NAS primarily for storage of video editing footage. I might pull data directly from the NAS to use in my projects, if needed, but it will mostly serve as a backup. I want the option of expandability and a pre-built NAS simply can't offer that unless you're willing to empty your pockets. I was wondering about the SATA connectors because they're listed strangely on the MB specs... In the picture of the MB, the SATA connectors are listed as SATA3G. Is this not SATA III?
  3. The storage interface section on the motherboard's specs states "SATA-300 -connectors: 6 x 7pin Serial ATA." My understanding of this is that there are 6 SATA connectors, which you can see on the images of the MB. I'm going to buy some NAS drives to put in there.
  4. I've asked this question on this forum before, so my apologies if you're returning to help me yet again! Anyway, I've been looking to build a NAS from a pre-built computer. I found this one on eBay today and it looks like a perfect fit - the price is right, as well. Do you think it would make a good NAS build? Thanks in advance, Erin Joan
  5. Do you think this one is worth the extra $30? Sorry to keep sending you PCs I'm just really thankful for your input.
  6. Ah, okay - very good to know, thank you. What do you think about this computer?
  7. I want to move it into another case. I'm assuming it's mATX form factor if it fits in that slim case.
  8. I haven't decided on the drive config quite yet but I'll save that for later. An i5 would be my preference but I saw the price on this and it's quite attractive. Do you think an i5 would offer me anything in terms of performance or reliability?
  9. Hi all, I found this on Facebook marketplace and I want to use the parts to build a NAS. It has 8GB of ram (enough to run FreeNas) and 64bit processing but I don't know how many SATA connectors the motherboard has. I've had one person tell me they've used this exact PC to make a NAS but I want to know your thoughts... Also - do you think it's a good price? Thanks in advance, Erin Joan
  10. That's what I was thinking... I'm getting cheaper by the moment and I just want to find some garbage $25 PC for the hell of it That being said it still has to be somewhat sufficient. Thanks again for your help it means a lot to me!
  11. Would you mind taking a look at this one? Do you think it's a good price? https://denver.craigslist.org/sys/d/castle-rock-used-desktop-computer-pc/7164151403.html
  12. Thank you so much for your help, btw - I really appreciate your time! I'm really excited to learn more about NASs but I want to do it right.
  13. I have but they're overpriced and they offer little to no expansion. Plus, I'm a PC enthusiast so the idea of building something myself excites me.
  14. Yes, that's what I'm planning to do here. I'm going to install FreeNas and load it with HDDs.
