So I have an older case thats got 24-sata 3.5" spots on it, thinking I could make a new storage server but I need a little advice.
So far Im going to run the motherboard from a Dell T3500 in it with an Intel I7 920 and 12 gigs of ram.
What I need help with is, I need recommendations for a decent but not super pricey raid controller.
Thing Is, I havent used one in years, so I dont understand what cables I will need, I only plan to start out with about 8 drives, and add later, so Ill only need one controller to start.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also I suppose I should mention Im planning to run Server 2008 R2 and I wanted to use something like Stablebit drivepool- my drives wont all be the same size I dont think so Ill need to be able to add what I need as I go.
