It's a home server. It will have HD movies on, ETC.

I don't know much about servers but I got told by a tech your gonner want a really good cpu, and to me it looks like you have it, he also said memory and the harddrives aswell, again to me it looks great.

but yes you have 2tb which is pointless

Windows home server will write the file to both hard drives, kinnda like Software RAID. So, in effect it's 1tb :)

Thanks for that though Antdemo! :D
