The case and power supply

 

PC CaseStep 1 - The case and power supply

Cases vary in price from about £20 up to £200. Most come with a power supply already installed. The key consideration is the number of drive bays (if you have a few hard disks to add to your system) and the wattage of the power supply. The case shown here which was less than £20 has 450w power supply and 7 drive bays.

We are planning to use this as a home server to hold documents, music, photos and video etc for our home network.

As such we wanted to ensure we have enough drives to hold all the data we want.
