Long time lurker on these forums. I'm looking for a bit of advice on a motherboard and processor for a home server. Ideally after something that will allow plenty of expansion in the future and uses very little power when idling. A 4 bay NAS looks like its about 250quid and I think it must be possible to build something more flexible for less than that (or is it?). Kit doesn't need to be new - quite happy to look on ebay etc just wondering where to start (very keen on keeping the power use and price low). I'd be running something like freenas on it and just using it for streaming video and audio, normally only to a single device at once so nothing demanding. It would probably start off with a single 1.5tb hard drive (as I have one lying about) installed and then expand once Thailand recovers... Thanks in advance for any help recieved.
