Right guys, so I've finally had enough of having various hard drives scattered around my room and in my computer, what I want to do is have a server, with something around the 5-6Tb mark of storage available, probably in a raid 5 configuration, so I suspect going for individual 1tb drives would be best for this. From this I'll then make a backup of all the date, which will be offsite. Only problem I have really is there's so much data to take in with what you could do with a server, as far as I know all I want to do is backup my data and thats really about it, if I could get rid of the mechanical drives I have in my PC and use the server for that instead, that would also be great, but not entirely sure if this is possible. So basically what do I need, don't really want to spend to much, maybe £500-600, possibly a bit more but I'd say no more than £750 all in. I know hardware wise I could probably get away with a low end AMD dual core, for a case I was thinking a fractal R3, seeing as its pretty good and easy to fill with plenty of drives. Now could I use a small SSD for boot drive or is that not really worth it? Also some of the reading I have done as basically shown me that having a raid card is probably better than using software raid, so has anybody got any good RAID card recommendations that aren't about £500 :| So guys, any help is much appreciated, because this is actually making my head hurt.
