now ive upgraded laptops and desktops as far as memory or changing a cd drive so i can recognize some stuff but im not expert.
im looking to build a network storage area. i want to start with about 500gb hd till that fills and these are the specs that ive come up with right now
also what kinda os can i use i was thinkin of buying or findin 2000professional to put it on the network but im not runnin apps from it just storing music movies and files for my home network.
anyway heres what i have so far.
nMEDIAPC HTPC 400BA Black Aluminum panel/ Steel ATX Media Center / HTPC Desktop Computer Case - Retail
ASUS A8V-XE Socket 939 VIA K8T890 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
not sure if this is over kill but i dont want it to bog down if its processing command from two computers at the same time trying to access data
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - Retail
memory x3 prolly
CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory - Retail
LINKSYS EG1064 10/ 20/ 100/ 200/ 1000/ 2000Mbps PCI-X Instant Gigabit Network Adapter 1 x RJ45 - Retail
IS 63 too much for that card ( i just want something dependable and fast)
now for the rest ill take suggestions
i know i still need a vid card and sound but i figured those would be basic since im not using this system for this. and i would add prolly a card reader in the front but i what else would i need
-psu?(not sure if its included)
hope i made my self clear i sometimes think faster than i type so it comes out weird to others
im not slow i swear lol
ps i know i missed the hd i think i can find that myself unless you know a deal for 500gb
