Hi Hi, Well, now it's confirmed and it looks like we'll be spending the holidays in the States, which is a benefit as the dollar is dropping against the krona and it will be a cost benefit to buy hardware while we're there. So now I'm coming to my question, I'm not afraid of DIY, and will have loads of time on my hands from March to Sept next year as I'll be on paternity leave (god bless equality in swe) and am already looking to build a new desktop, so I figured a NAS at the same time would be cool / do-able. But, and it's a big but, am I better off just buying something ready made in the states, and getting the HDD's here? Or would it be better to DIY? Please recommend me either a hardware list of components or a ready made NAS that's available in the US. OFC, if it's hardware components then, I would need what OS? For me I would like something that is little more powerful that can multitask , but of course it should be quiet (low power is another point, but can you get a decent multi-tasking CPU that is low power?) Should be a 4 bay case or ready built, that can be used in RAID, media purposes, encoding, DL, web interface? Out of curiosity, if I wanted to set up a game server, could I use this as well , and what broadband speeds would I need to play l4d or CSS (max 12 players)? Money is no object (well there are limits ofc), but I'd like to keep it reasonable. Anything that costs more than 1000usd is not really reasonable since we should be able to do this for less. It's OK if it's diskless as I want to put in my own HDD's, so don't factor the HDD's into the cost. Is that enough information, or is it still vague? I don't know much about NAS, so I'm sorry if my requests aren't specific enough.
