Like the title says, I build a budget HTPC 2 years ago. For storage, I use a QNAP NAS. I was thinking for a while to build my own server, so I thought about merging my server build with my current HTPC. These are the relevant HTPC components: CPU/GPU: Intel Pentium G850 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 2.90Ghz Memory: 4GB RAM Motherboard: P8H61-M PRO Power: 500 Watts (don't know the exact model) (Case: Antec Fusion Remote) Together with these components I would like to build this: Case: Sharkoon T9 HDD Bays: 2x Sharkoon SATA QuickPort Intern 4 Bay V2 RAID Controller: HighPoint RocketRAID 2720SGL HDD: 8x HGST 7K400 Extra small HDD for OS For the moment the HTPC is a Win7, but combining it with the server I'm probably going to use a Linux distro and run XBMC as media center. Any thoughts on this build? Can CPU handle this? I mean managing a RAID-5 24TB array while playback on XBMC? Or might I need an additional GPU/Graphics Cards? And what about expansion? I still have 3 5.25" bays left, space to add another SATA QuickPort. Again, I don't know if my current hardware is up for the task... How about power? Will a single 500W Power Supply suffice? Any additional comments/ideas? Thanks!
