Noob building a dedicated server

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am planning on building a dedicated server and also building a movie and file storage.

At the moment i have 6 rocketfish case that i am going to use for many things.

I am going to buid two htpc, server, storage tower and a work horse computer or two.

Can you let me know what duel cpu morther board to use as the server would be used for personal home server duty and anime servering to freinds as i am an anime addict. The storage is alot of HD anime, movies and files more than 2 tb worth at the moment, storage should have more than 4 tb of storage.

Thanks for any help up front.

P.S. server might also server a web page for my bis

if the server is just for video and music and file streaming, you won't need a dual processor mobo, some old computer parts that you have around would be enough ... my home server which is just for streaming music and audio at home, uses a pentium processor 2 ghz, 1gb ram, loaded with ubuntu server edition with 2 TB of storage

the dedicated would be doing what ... as in for web server, game server, etc

Dual core rather an Dual CPU would be much more cost effective. You could do quad core as well, both dual and quad core cpu's are pretty cheap.

I'm running my server on a celeron D proc & 1GB of RAM + 2x 120HDD's with an old ASUS P4800D-X mobo and Mandrake(linux)OS installed. So like what was stated above you don't necessarily need a specific mobo for a server.
