All I have to give is some old Apple SCSI drives. Three of them to be exact. They dont hold much, but you could have them for free.

I also have some fans...several sizes, but you cant have em til I write my fan comparo. That wont be that long though as I plan on doing it this week.

Arius. I would be glad to help you with your server guidance. First off, what is it for and what do you expect from it.

If you plan to host games on it you might want to switch to SCSI. Also maxout the logicboard's memory.

You can use fast ata (maxline lll) or sata drives too. You may want to have a raid setup of some sort. A raid 5 would probably be the fastest and safest way to go. How fast is your network and what games do you play? How much storage do you need?
