  1. Alright, I'll look into it. Do you need RAID controllers? I hear those are pricey. I need to decide which OS, which would you recommend?
  2. I have. Is there a way to do RAID configs on the cheap?
  3. Wired connection it is, then. Thank you.
  4. So, in all honesty I have no idea what this means. I'm a pretty big PC builder, I love computer hardware. But I'm in my teens and my father wanted a server for the home. I'm not familiar with anything related to trunking or gigabit switches. I use a netgear tri-band router with 1 2.4ghz network and a 2 5ghz networks.
  5. I just threw it in the second one since I assumed both would lack integrated graphics, my bad. I'm not sure where my server is going yet, near the router for LAN or by my PCs and wireless. (which was the reason behind both wired and wireless cards)
  6. I intend on using it for NAS storage between my 3 household computers, and a few phones. Additionally, I intent on doing some media streaming from the server to my devices.
  7. Both RAM options have "yes" written under the ECC header in the product specification section.
  8. Those were the most ideal mobos I could find. I actually neglected to check for motherboard connection, I always plug in PCI-E network cards to my builds Are there cheaper mobos with the same ECC capabilities?
  9. I made a post yesterday about building a sever, which prompted me to do some extensive research on the subject after I was intrigued. Can you guys suggest edits to either of these lists and decide between them? Thanks! edit: links are not clickable in the poll, sorry 1- http://pcpartpicker.com/list/zjVFPs 2- http://pcpartpicker.com/list/3xTrGf
  10. I could be using platforms such as iTunes to buy and download a movie, or resort to other means if you catch my drift.
  11. A device on my network, like if I download a movie I want to be able to view it from my phone, PC, laptop, while also having NAS for a shared file system.
  12. I'm sorry, I meant sharing content from device to device without wired connection.
  13. I am planning on streaming over the internet, is this a poor decision?
  14. I get around 30mbps down and 5mbps up. Is building one that's more effective in my best interests long term? Also, how much is the raspberry pi build?
