building backup/maybe gaming server

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
im kinda scared about our current computer situation: we dont have any back ups. at all. years worth of pictures, etc and financial documents are being "protected" on a 8 year old dell. i have my dad's support for this. its going to be mainly backup/audio streaming, but maybe game also depending on how everything works out. this is what i have so far..

nice big hdd im also going to be putting in an 80gb hard drive for linux so i can reformat that if necisary and not lose everything.

crazy cheap, i dont think ill need anything more

i will be building my own case XD going to have fun (always is but a smaller mobo this time so thats very good news for me)

just going to use current mouse/keyboard and unplug them when un needed...dont see why i would need to keep them on there 24/7. goes the same with monitor.

any other ideas? i just want something really cheap. the game i MIGHT host would be CS and thats a big maybe dont incorperate that into your thinking.

thanks

heh might as well where i can. yea its 99% backup. if i ever have a lan party might use it for that but would be like a 10 person cs 1.6 server. dont think that will happen much. will also stream music but thats not too much to ask...

might want to check out the case mod work log section some time. going to be building the case soon
