    Will be used for storage, TV server (recording, timeshifting etc) and streaming for 2 or 3 clients...

    Core i3 2120
    Asrock B75M-GL
    Sandisk 240Gb SSD (OS)
    2 x 4Tb WD Green (storage)
    2 x 4Gb DDR3 Corsair XMS, 1333MHz

    I know the HD 2000 graphics on the i3 chip is a bit poor, but the most video intensive stuff the machine will have to do is watch the odd 1080p video or a bit of HD video editing.

    Trying to do it on a budget as weve just moved house, hence the Sandy Bridge setup rather than anything newer.

    Opinions pls :)

    TIA

    HD Editing - may be challenging, but I'd be surprised if you have any performance issues with MePo on rig - more grunt than mine [low end Pentium & 4G RAM] and it's never missed a beat:)

    Went with an ivy bridge 3240 instead. This also allowed me to upgrade to the 1600Mhz ddr3 memory :)
