I'm looking at possible suggestions to update my server. Currently, my 15 year old system is starting to fade, so time for an update.
Budget: PC hardware I would like to keep <$1000. If you have a case suggestion, please let me know. The case is a separate item and is not included in the 1000 budget for the hardware.
Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): -- File server (Samba) -- Web server (Apache/MySQL/Bind9) for local development and home use projects. Nothing exposed publicly. -- Plex Server (music mainly, but some movies) -- CVS
Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): Nothing required (I have the monitor, keyboard, etc) but if it is something for the hardware please add your suggestions.
Operating System required: Currently planning on sticking with Ubuntu 14.0 LTS.
Currently, this is the case that the server is running in. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811208022 I would like to ensure I have enough room to expand the hard drives if needed and clearly fit the hardware in your suggestion, so any case suggestions would be appreciated. Hot-swap drive bays are a plus, but not required.
