Following on from my previous post on my file server, here is what
I’m now looking at. It’s based upon various discussions on mailing lists and IRC channels.
- Samsung SATA CD/DVD Burner $20 (+ $8 shipping)
- SuperMicro 5046A $750 (+$43 shipping)
- RocketRAID 2300 PCIe 4x SATA $120 (+$8 shipping)
- Crucial 3x2G ECC DDR3-1333 $191 (+ $6 shipping)
- Xeon W3520 $310
Total price in cart: $1389.95 + $52.95 shipping = $1441.90
Not included: HDD, which will be my next task.
