how much data do you plan to store on the server.. a 3 drive raid 5 doesn't really make much sense.. you are losing 33% to parity.. you start to get into 4 or 5 drive raid 5 would make sense (25%, 20% lost)..
if you getting ANY new drive these days, it will blow at least $200 out of your budget..
I am running mediatomb connected to my 3 QNAP 6 bay NAS drives.. each have 6x2tb in RAID 6
I have went down the path of using cheap hardware, etc.. but when you have over 24TB of storage, you don't want to mess around!
