Need help with choosing server

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So, I'm looking for a server which will mostly be used for backup and storage, maybe down the road as a firewall (have 3 PC's (for now))

I'm thinking of a HP ProLiant ML110 G6 Tower Server (470065-321)

http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/za/en...5-4188083.html

It would cost me 455,60€ + 2TB WD's (Don't know if I should go Caviar Green or Caviar Blue)

Or should I build the entire thing myself?

Some advice that I was given in the thread I created about this:
http://www.overclock.net/servers/113...ed-advice.html


The WD green drives do not RAID well, so if you intend to use a RAID setup then look elsewhere (I'm getting Hitachi drives which other OCN'ers say will work fine).

Also my build is just as good (if not better from a power standpoint) as the one you have linked and it is significantly less (including 5x 2TB hard drives!). Seems like that would be a better solution for you. See the thread I linked above.
