Need help specking out a server hardware desktop system. I have had two of my desktop computers fail and lost data this weekend and I am looking to use this server as a home server media UPnP, web hosting, dns, samba etc and will be running ZFS freebsd/solaris in raid. I was wondering if you guys that build servers yourself could recommend some pieces.
Case: Antec 300 Power Supply: Seasonic ~450 watt GOLD ( desktop is ok? ) Motherboard: no idea need help (require IPMI or something so I do not have to keep moving things) CPU: Single Xeon (e3 1230?) Memory: no idea ecc is a must 16GB? cdrom: crappy one I can get consumer hard drives: 4-6x (room to add more?) Western Digital RE4 WD1003FBYX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Enterprise Hard Drive os drive: I can find a consumer ssd
Any other help would be appreciated, thanks :) wanting to keep cost to a min but still stay in the enterprise hardware as I am done and frustrated with consumer.
