[QUOTE="TriplexDread, post: 14284641, member: 2443"] Hello all. We all know money a little hard to come by at present yeah? I have for a while had plans to build a system for the NAS and using what I have laying about at home. Maybe buy a better APU. I bought the flagship model albeit old now. The AMD A8-3870K - 4x 3GHz. It's going into a FM1 board with about 16gig ddr3. My question is do you think it is enough to run a FreeNAS server and possibly one VM? I don't have a clue really so it's all a new learning curve for me. I will of course have to buy the HDD's Gonna cost a few quid as I want to fill the SATA ports. 6 in total on this board GA-A55M-S2HP. And a case too. Cabinet is in and all wired up awaiting this; [URL unfurl="true"]https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B088FZNB75/?coliid=I1NT7RUPVAY64S&colid=1YWT6CCK9DPWC&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it[/URL] What are you opinions powerful enough? Should be yeah? I'm taking into account most NAS have four cores of a lower lower speed and much lower memory config? I'm a complete n00b at this FreeNAS stuff and VM's so looking forward to delving in. Any opinions? [/QUOTE]
