  1. I do not need anything fancy, AT ALL, and if there's anything I could get away with that's cheaper, please let me know. Thermaltake V6 BlacX Edition Gaming Chassis Mid Tower Steel Computer Case BlacX Top Mounted HDD Docking Station VM100M1W2Z GIGABYTE GA-P55-USB3 LGA 1156 Intel P55 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard (Open Box) Kingston ValueRAM 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Intel Core i3-540 Clarkdale 3.06GHz LGA 1156 73W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80616I3540 MSI N8400GS-D256H GeForce 8400 GS 256MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 I have plenty of drives here, so not included. Anything else I'll need that I've forgotten? Will this all work? Thanks.
  2. I want to help myself and not just post questions to the forums, but EVERY SINGLE Gigabyte motherboard in the Database is so old they are no longer sold. I want to build a really simple little server for a RAID array. I want something cheap. Super cheap. But where can I find current compatibly reports? And why aren't all you folk doing the right thing and updating the Database with your own products when you have them working??
  3. Suggestions for a very basic server

    I guess I was looking at another motherboard. Do you have any suggestions of a motherboard with USB 3 that will use the built-in i3 graphics? So what about this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813157214 Or if I forgo the USB 3. Then what about this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813157190
  4. Suggestions for a very basic server

    OK, so right now I have decided on: GIGABYTE GA-P55-USB3 LGA 1156 Intel P55 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard Intel Core i3-540 Clarkdale 3.06GHz LGA 1156 73W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80616I3540 Kingston ValueRAM 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Thermaltake V6 BlacX Edition Gaming Chassis Mid Tower Steel Computer Case BlacX Top Mounted HDD Docking Station VM100M1W2Z The motherboard says it has no onboard video, yet it has built-in video ports. What's with that?? Do I really need to buy a video card??
  5. I have searched before posting, but can't find much at all. Most info is more than 2 years old and no longer relevant. So regrettably I ask a question that probably been asked before. I have very simple needs. I need to build a headless server (I will connect to it with ScreenSharing if I need to). I have a monitor for initial install though, so don't worry about that. I only need the server to have two things. A port-multiplier eSATA card, and gigabit Ethernet. All it will be doing is running a RAID 5 array and running as a file server for just one person, me. I want to go as cheap as humanly possible, with the exception of the NIC card and eSATA card, which I'd like a quality component, but nothing extreme. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

    Where can you buy this?
  7. Have you changed any of the items in your list? Perhaps you could update it if you have.
  8. I too am looking to build a machine that will only be doing FCP work. Please keep us up to date on your progress, what components you eventually settle on, and how well it's all working. Thanks so much.
  9. Without wanting to look through 56 pages... Can someone tell me if there's an i7 "kit" anyone has put together with install instructions yet?
  10. Is there a standard known-good "kit" of parts for an i7 system on here and install instructions?
  11. It seems they have pretty good bang for the buck, and it's all installed for you. Any reason why not?

Sounds like a pretty good deal no??
  12. Seems he's posted this ll over the web... http://www.google.com/search?client=safari...-8&oe=UTF-8
  13. Well, I would spend more than that. I would like something as nice as the MBP, which I know I won't, but as close to it. Thin and light but powerful.
