it might be worth considering an atom processor if power consumption is an issue and you don't need the encoding done quickly.

Maybe a dual-core Atom.... but for about a tiny bit more, you can get a Athlon II X2 that is 2-3 times as powerful and uses only a few watts more in idle state.

That being said, Atom motherboards do not have the necessarily PCIe slot for his RAID controller.

i Might sound a bit noobish when it comes to server hardware and for that i apologise, im fairly familiar with computers but when i am setting up the hardware to the server i have problems choosing hardware for some reason, so i am grateful for the help
so far with the help of pointing out hardware i have saved over $700

It looks like i am starting to get to a point were the hardware are decent when it comes to price/performance.

It's been said but with raid 5 you can save money by buying 3 HDDs now then add more later. It lowers your overall startup costs. Also, when do you need it? if your quick on boxing day you might get some amazing deals on parts.

Lastly, do you think you could hold out for 3TB drives? the ONLY reason I ask is because your looking at buying 8 HDDs right now. If it was me I'd buy 3 3TB HDDs, raid 5 them and just buy the same 3TB drives as I could afford them. In the long run by the time you reach your 8 drive goal, you'll have a LOT more space to play with.

I wont buy and build the server for some time just getting the base hardware set up,
but i don`t expect the 3TB drives to all much in price the next few month`s over here, right now the price on them are about $330 which is insane compared to 2TB drives.

but its an interesting thought, will certainly think about it. Thanks

The PSU is overkill as well. Your system will need around 200w under peak load.... except during boot where the HDDs spinning up may push power draw up to 350w. If your controller supports staggered spin up though, you will not break 200w.


You might want to find a 400-500w PSU with a high +5v rail rating.

or
CORSAIR CX 430W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V PSU?

NOT the 430CX.... it's a 300w PSU.

What's the +5v ampere rating on the 500CX?

There are other quality brands besides Corsair...
