file server build - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Thread Starter 
no but i was thinking because the only good motherboard i could find with sata 300 and socket 754 was also sli and that got me thinking that i could use it to play games every now and then and that's why i would use windows xp home just to use on those rare ocaisions when i wan't to play a game on it especially when it would only cost $10 more. i will only use this server in my house for backing up computers so the 10 connections thing would not be a problem especially because i'm stuck at 640 gigs and that won't back up that much.

Ok, Windows it is. Sounds like a good plan.

So your server is basically a backup/gaming system essentially? If it was for backup, I couldn't see as much resources being put into it (CPU and mem).

Eh, sorry if it seems that I don't know much about servers, its because I don't , although I've read a lot here and there about servers and whatnot

yeah i'm working on a program so i can just run it and it backs up all my needed data to the server then i have an automated installation XP CD that i can just plop in my drive and the os gets installed automatically. then on first boot it runs a program that i'm working on that installs all my software automatically and takes the files i backed up and puts them back where they belong. if all goes well i can do the whole thing in one night without bieng there! i do reinstalls for friends of the family all the time and i get money which i put into things such as this server which will let me do more peoples computers later.

You know, Acronis has this server program for $20 which will let you do a network boot/install to any hardware. So that you can install to people's PCs and stuff. It looks pretty cool:

AFAIK, his motherboard supports SLI, but he only picked it because he needed the RAID feature and it was cheap. I thikn he'll only be using a single card. But if he IS running SLI, I agree - don't and spend more money on other stuff.

i would use that but the problem is it only does images which means you would have to create an image for each computer which wouldn't make sense.

i only bought one graphics card but when i looked at reviews it benchmarked this motherboard and a sempron against a socket 939 sli with a athlon fx 57 in it but the same video cards and as long as you used high res there was only a small (imo) difference between the two. so i might just buy another 6600GT and put them in SLI just because i want my overclock to look better in graphics benchmarks. plus i have the option to get an athlon if i wish but i might just aswell save up for a much better cpu, mobo, and ram because i should be able to reuse everything else in my system.
