My System Specs


a typical enterprise spec for a server is a 8 port RAID hardware raid card; hosting RAID 1 SAS drives for OS and RAID 5 SAS for the data (with hot spare).

the IO system alone would be:
LSI 8 port PCIe 8x controller: $650
two seagate 146GB SAS @15K RPM for OS: $400
four seagate 300GB SAS @15K RPM for data: $2000 <-- this gives you close to 1TB storage

that brings your storage system to $3050 (ncix)

it's fair to say a proper server only performs as well as it's storage system. What was your budget again?
Phenom II 945 :: ASUS M4A78-E (780G) :: BFG 285GTX :: 4GB Mushkin DDR2 (5-4-4-12) :: Creative Xi-Fi :: Seagate 500 gig 7200.12 (better than WD BLACK!!!!!) :: Samsung 2493HM
