I want to setup a Linux NAS server for my home. I have an old case with power supply, so that's taken care of. I of course want it to run Linux, thinking Fedora because I really like it and it can help me stay on my enterprise server game, since it's basically RHEL(ish). What I learn at work I can directly use here. Since it's for home though, I don't want to spend a lot of money, so I was thinking built in video (no gaming will be done here) and I was thinking AMD. But I don't know much about AMD, what's good, what's bad, or how the speeds are determined. I've only used Intel, except for a Cyrix processor I once had. Anyway, another thing I'd like to do is to have the hard drives setup in a RAID config (software RAID). Do you guys think 2 x 2 TB for RAID 1 or 3 x 1 TB for RAID 5 would be better? Either way I'd end up with 2 TB of usable space. I'd be storing files there so I would think write speeds shouldn't be too important, read speed would be more important. So what do you think would be a good mobo/cpu combo and what do you think about RAID level?
