Default Re: Hypothetical budget server build (And a hello)

is there any reason why it has to be rackmount, if you got a tower server there alot cheaper, the only diffrence is that rackservers are smaller and can be put in a cabinet.

wait, you said "render farm" what will you be rendering? its possible to get a really good desktop/server processor that does some pretty crappy rendering.

mass storage and rendering are totally different animals. which will you be doing 1st?

a good friend of mine has 2 dell poweredges sitting in his basement on a full rack. 4 Xeon 1GHZ + 32GB of ram in one and a dual Fiber setup on the larger server, then his Domain Controller is a dual Xeon 2GHZ + 16GB of ram + single fiber. with a dell powerconnect 48 port 10/100/1000 + 2 fiber uplinks.

did some cleaning at our old highschool, paid 200USD and took em home, lucky bitch.

needless to say lan parties at his house are amazing.
