Description

This was built to be a 6 Channel DVR and possible steam box from main desktop.

This build didnt cost me as much as the price says. I had the ram/ssd sitting around doing nothing. I also had the 3tb sitting around as a 2nd back up to my FreeNAS build. I also had a copy of win 7 ultimate that I wasnt using. The APU/Mobo costed like $170 w/ tax at microcenter. So spent like $650 since I had a decent amount sitting around. Havent used the Ceton yet since I am waiting on my M-Card still, but should be a nice way to fill the nas box and build up my plex server.
