    Supermicro X9SCM-O
    Pentium G2030
    4GB 1333MHz ECC
    Intel Quad port PCIe x4 NIC
    choices for storage - WD HDD 500GB Blue? or Crucial RealSSD C300 128GB?
    My current needs are firewall/router for small home 35/35 network.
    Later on of course, I want the ability to play with packages, add a vpn maybe,
    and purchase more bandwidth.
    The board I've purchased will allow for upgrades to cpu power as well as memory.
    There's room for expansion on the PCIe for whatever I want to play around with.
    I'm putting this in a nice Lian Li box with a Antec VP450 that I have laying about.
    From mine to yours, have a safe and happy Holiday Season.

  • Its way more than enough…

    Ok, I admit it, I love over-kill…
    I just don't see this as being a character flaw ;D

    Any thoughts on the SSD vs. Harddrive?

  • If you want easy and reliable, get a small Western Digital Black.
    If you want cheap and probably reliable, get a MLC SSD and set the trim properly.

    If you don't mind a little expense, get an industrial SLC SSD and treat it same as a normal HDD - Will last forever.
