My System Specs

Default

If it's a file server I HIGHLY suggest you pick up THREE matching drives for your array and set them to RAID 5, this is RAID 1 with redundancy, you would still have 1TB of space to use with three 500gb drives. This way you won't lose any of your data if anything goes wrong with the array.

I can't comment on DB levels for a PSU/Case, I've never really worried about it. Someone with more experience may be able to help there.
