I bought 5 hard drives (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822332099&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-NA-_-NA
) for a server, and never used them. SO, I have decided to do (hopefully) a desktop build with them.
These are 2.5", so I am going to get a 2.5"->3.5" bracket (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817994085
). I like the Cooler Master cases, so I'll probably go with one of those (maybe http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119260
I am a fairly heavy computer user, I use it for: programming, image analysis (really should have a i7 quad core), home media server, and some gaming here and there (but not as important).
I should probably setup these with a RAID? How is that done? How do I know what kind of PSU I'll need with this kind of setup? Basically all I've said here is all I know, so any suggestions are helpful.
I would like to stay fairly cheap... 1000$ cap, the less the better.
