Hello all

Im after feedback and opinions on hardware for a Home Server im planning on buying/building, Has anyone done or plan to also? Im planning on using the 2008 R2 Vail build of WHS (Windows Home Server) Which means it will need to be 64bit, One of the question i have is hardware im considering building a shuttle XPC that way i can choose the hardware and build accordingly.
Another option is to stick with the current build of Windows Home Server and use the HP MediaSmart EX490 i wouldnt get everything on my tick list and wouldnt be able to install/upgrade to Vail but would tick the media off my ticklist.

Of course the hardware doesnt have to be a shuttle but i am leaning towards having a more attractive base rather than the traditional server build, Otherwise any other server deals may temp me?
I quite fancy other items such as; IP CCTV, Exchange etc but more for playing with! ;)

Any opinions and feedback are very much appreciated

you might be better off in misc rather than feedback - feedback is for people to talk about the site, such as issues, problems with it.

Master chief is v. Knowledgeable on this subject

I bought a mini itx mobo and Intel atom package, 2gb of RAM and 6tb of f3's. Currently running WHS, not the vail version. I had to put mine in a regular sized case as I wanted enough bays for hdds, but It's pretty hidden in my office
