Default Your Ultimate Home Server

Hi Linus

Well I was wondering why you used a LSI 9240-8i instead of a LSI 9260-8i.

I know the price is a bit different.
But should'ent the 9260 that has a dedicated processor be alot superior to the 40?

Or do the xeon cpu counter the difference?

I want to know exactly what parts he used and how much the total was overall.
I am watching you.

For me, insanity is super sanity. The normal is psychotic. Normal means lack of imagination, lack of creativity.
