Been a while since I wanted a NAS. I was looking at entry level Qnaps but I just cannot justify the budget for that yet and also my inner geek want's to have some fun. I've ordered a Raspberry Pi yesterday but cancelled the order because it seems a little under powered for the task.
Goals: Latest OMV, Torrenting, DLNA streaming to a TV connected to the same network, maybe a cloud solution later, RAID 1. That's it.
I was looking at some used motherboards last night with the recommended i3 processor but here in EU they seem a bit pricy (70-80 euros on ebay) and it seems it will cost me probably the same if I build it myself vs buying Qnap.
So if someone had the same goals please share your specs and . The good thing is I have a 128gb Samsung SSD laying around that can be used in the build so at least I'm not spending money there.
THanks for your time:)
