64-bit file server with HTPC capabilities
I'm very new to linux and would like to build a 64-bit file server to backup my pc and laptop, I would also like it to have HTPC capabilities because it will be stored in my "man cave", where me and mates seem to hang out a fair bit.
I've never built an AMD system before and would like this build to be AMD.
This is what I've come up with so far:
Case: Thermaltake V3 with 450W PSU
CPU: Athlon II x2 255 3.1GHz
Mobo: ASRock 880GXH-USB3
HDD: WD Green 500Gb for OS, 2x Samsung EcoGreen 2Tb for storage (one will be kept off site)
Memory: 1x Corsair CMV4GX3M1A1333C9 4Gb DDR3
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-B123A (Blu-ray player/DVD burner)
Wifi: TP-Link TL-WN851N
Tuner: Leadtek Winfast PxDVR 3200H PCIe
Graphics: On board
Sound: On board
I'm not sure about all this being compatible with linux, like the tuner, but I have read that you can get this working.
I'm on a pretty tight budget so I can't upgrade to higher end components, but would like suggestions on components where I could save a few $$ or if any of these components are overkill.
Thanks for looking,
