Hardware recommendations please

Recommended Posts

I brought a second hand N45L with a 250 h/d from ebay for only £150.

Now i have brought a few bits that will let me use 6 SATA drives.

 

However i would prefer to use a SATA 3 based card that has room for 6+1 eSATA.

To top that off i cant spend a lot as most of my money is going to be on some WD Reds. Probably mostly 4tb , but i am also getting a 6 as well.

I am also getting a better network card , so it can match the speed on my network.

Speed is essential as i want to stream 4K Movies from my small bedroom to the front room.

 

So far i have put the latest bios on till i can get the rest of my equipment.

I only have a limited budget as my wife will kill me if i spend too much. :smile:

Do you realize that mechanical drives will not exceed SATA II speed anyway?

SATA III will only beneficial with SSD.

Do you have a 10GBit network? Or else the network card in the N54L has no problem with delivering more than 100MByte/s (1GBit/s) :smile:.

Buy your wife a little nice present instead of the network card - and live a little longer! :wink:
