Hey guys, I'm hoping for a bit of advice towards a bit of a tricky build. I need this box to cover a few gaps/holes in my current workflow and storage solutions. 1. Store personal media: photos, music, videos, torrents, etc. 2. Store client files for web & media. Clients will need to be able to remote access the files, particularly print files, for the times I'm not available to send them off. 3. Import and store commercially taken RAW photos & video, preferably firewire readers. So far I'm thinking LAMP w/ Samba should address all these issues, however I'm having some some difficulty choosing the actual drives for storage. Current build: Intel i3 530 Zotac H55ITX-A-E (Purchased) Corsair 4GB (2 x 2GB) CMV4gx3m2A1333C9 Lian Li PC-Q08B Corsair HX-650 (Left over from recent upgrade) Sandisk Cruzer 16gb for the system drive. Will be a headless box, so not worried about video. Looking for 6TB total storage w/ backup. would like to stay under $200.00 per drive, total budget under $2k CAD. I've been looking at the 2TB Samsung Spinpoint F4's, but I've been considering the WD Green 2TB's too. I'll be looking to purchase 3 now, and another 3 in a couple of weeks for back ups. Just can't seem to settle on a final decision. I'm open to other suggestions, other than Seagate. I used to love & use their stuff exclusively, but it seems like their drives are turning to crap, including the 2 1TB drives I currently have, so I'm not going anywhere near them till I see some consistent reports for awhile. Also, am I going to have issues with using the USB drive as a system drive?
