My System Specs


I built my nas out of a mobo that has onboard video. Then I installed a 4x pci-e adaptec raid card and added drives to that and the mobo. I have a very small case with 7 hdd's in it running all my storage drives and it's very quiet. You really don't need much horse power to host files unless you are watching multiple movies in multiple places simultaneously. In fact I set my performance profile to background services.. it uses very little power to run.

For my movies I use a boxee box from netgear... has a great little remote which is awesome because now I don't have a keyboard and mouse floating around the living room all the time. Neat little remote tho... has a small keyboard on the back. The only issue I have with the boxee software is it doesn't always play the mkv subtitles. This can be fixed by downloading the srt file and putting it in the folder with the movie and then selecting it when playing. Takes me about 10 seconds to do this.
