    Building a home Server - prices please

    My UK Based Fileserver has finally died, so Im going to replace it.

    I want the following:

    4U Rackmount case
    Gigabyte GA-790XTA Motherboard
    AMD Phenom II x4955
    4GB of RAM (or 8 if its not much more)
    450W PSU
    4* 2TB HDD (Seagate ?)

    Its currently a 4U rackmount so Id like to do a similar case, can buy seperately though if needed

    4u Rackmount Case No Psu - 550mm deep - Aria Technology

    What prices can you come up with? Im ready to place the order this week

    Yeah it does seem a bit overkill to have such a large case with so little in it.

    Thats my case !

    Its made from recycled tank armor, and weighs a ton.
    Its lovely inside, plenty of space and huge fans keep everything cool.
    I bought one for a file server I was building and liked it so much I made my home server out of one.
    It is big ... but its near silent in use and concider it a case for life.

    thats the case the current server is in, but it has 10HDDs in it.. you have a point I guess. Its only an 8U rack and the 4U case fills it up neatly, with a pactch panel, switch and a 2U server taking up the rest

    Maybe a 2U server would do, as long as the heatsink isnt too tall...

    Speaking of which, I guess Ill need a heatsink added to that list too.
