I totally forgot about an old AMD based PC I had in my closet. It has a Phenom II X4 955BE on an Asus M4A79XTD Evo motherboard with 2x2GB DDR3-1600 G.Skill Ripjaws memory and an AMD 5770 GPU. I can totally use this as my storage PC. Any reason not to? I need to find a smaller, quieter case for it though.
How can you forget about a perfectly fine pc that's still viable today?!
Only reason not to use it for storage would be that it's overqualified
I don't know, it's old and I've replaced it twice already. I always sell my old to fund the new, but I built two of these and just forgot I hadn't sold the second. I guess the question is, will I have to reformat the hard drives I just installed into my main rig. I put my two 2TB into RAID0 via W7. Can I just swap them into the old PC? If not, no big deal. I'm putting my new 3TB's in it anyway. But I would like to keep all the storage in one machine.
