so that everyone understands the quesitons i have to explain alot so please read carefully
2.8 GHz Unicore CPU
80 GB HDD IDE
3 PCI Bus
what i want to do to it:
OC the CPU to 3 GHz or 3.2GHz
Add a better heatsink fan
they have it ducted so all i have to do is change an 80mm fan in the back of the case to have a CFM of 84.1
add a small PCI vid card to reduce the cycles on the CPU
hopefully find a 500W PSU or something simular
okay ive been looking into a nice pc project
it involves Ubuntu and an old Dell 2400
so the ultimate goal would be to make a blu-ray video server for the home
streaming it to anywhere in the house
now this Dell 2400 belongs in the stone age
and it has 3 PCI slots
and i have alot of questions about RAID cards
i found this one
that i like
it has 4 SATA II ports and a PCI bus
so its perfect for this project
1: it will add the 4 HDDs that i attach and format them right?
2: the information goes through the card, and not any SATA cables that attach to the Mobo right?
3: Can this added space be labled and partioned off from the main HDD and used as internal network storage?
4: will there be a performance loss on the SATA II HDDs by using a RAID card?
i might have more questions later
