    Anyone want a kick ass home Server?

    Get:

    http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=57414

    and a couple of 2G Xeons off Ebay (<70 quid each!)

    Then a WATX PSU - you can get these for 45 quid...

    some memory - Crucial - get 2 * 512MB sticks...

    ... sorted

    Case (will fit a chieftech or you could get a rackmount one) - www.pcicase.co.uk

    Heh, thought you were giving something away again, like the Desktop Case (not!) Or did you you actually give that away in the end? Who got it?

    Nice post though, would indeed make a great home server rig

    The only problem for a home server is that it's been designed for a Specific intel 1u or 2u rack cases. As such, it's got 2 64bit PCI-X slots at very odd locations.

    Yup, I came pretty close to buying it!
