    Hello,

    Ok guys. I’m not a n00b. I’ve been building PCs for over 15 years now. My file server recently died. I often reflected on how much I disliked it. It was cheap and that was about it. However, I was only serving files on it so I didn’t need a lot of power.

    Now, that it’s failed, I need to replace it. I’d like to build something substantially better. I’ve thought of using a dual socket server board and buying a couple of used Xeons and putting a crapload of ram in the box.

    Would I ever need anything more than 256GB of ram? How many NICs would be useful in this scenario? Part of my desire is curiosity. I love hardware and seeing what it can do. Besides serving up files what realistic uses could I use it for at home?

    I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
