Home Server!!!! HALP

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
so im pretty sure i already had a thread started for this but since i changed a few things thought i might start a new one....well here goes...

im building a home server and i want to do the following:
data backup
media dumping(rather then on my main pc)
file sharing
media center (i was reading that i can do that with WHS)

the following is what i have to work with:
AMD FX60 Dual Core Processor
ASUS AVP32r Deluxe 939 Board
2 gigs Corsair RAM
2x - 1Tb WB SATA (i plan on adding a few more drives over the next 6 months)
GIGABYTE GV-R455HM-512I Radeon HD 4550

What else should i be looking into? what questions should i ask? any advice? I have copies of both WHS 2003 and 2008 enterprise (from my fathers buisness). I also want to setup multi users on my server so my friends can log in and view what i have, but i know i can do that with any of the WHS versions i currently have.

I also could use some case recommendations, anything you guys might suggest? In the future i plan on adding atleast 2-3 more drives so ill need room for atleast 5 total drives...not sure if i should look into the hot swap drive bays or not.

go go
