I'm thinking about 2 of this hard drive http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822144417 to set up raid.
CD drivez: will be using and old one to save money
Graphic: I don't need sound or fancy graphics for sure.
I guess the most important thing would be the motherboard that's reliable and supports SATA II.
CPU: doesn't have to be cutting edge, just need something that's a good value.
RAM: I guess the RAM is important because it has to be reliable
Case: needs to be roomy and easy to work on. Looks isn't really important, funtionality and price is. If I can get away with stuffing everything into some of the old cases I have at home (w/ your recommendation) I will.
PSU: I have about 3 old cases(gateway, generic, cheap dell) at home with working PSU, I guess I've been lucky. I know this is important but spending $90 for one seems a little steep considering my system will only cost $500.
Please feel free to post any suggestions, I'm hoping to do this right away so don't wait too long to give me your valuable advices.
