Server Build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have about $300 to build a server and this is what I came up with. What would you change? I have an extra TB drive and I was going to make it an open case build so I don't need a case. For the OS I'm going to install a distro of linux.

You've got the i3 and a MoBo that supports the i3's onboard video, so you should be good to go! You making an HTPC server with this? Just curious...

BTW you could spend the 4 cents remaining in your budget to upgrade your seizure inducing avatar! j/k

I was going to make it into a web server for my website.

Haha, I'll think about changing it.

I would be a little concerned about disk I/O access, but if your website isn't getting a thousand hits a day a single HDD should be fine.

Choose a better PSU.

AMD build is cheaper.
