Decided to build a new home server and I must say I'm pretty impressed with whats out there. Amazon delivered the following today:

Fractal Design Node 302 Case - takes about 2x the space of a 490.
Asus P8H77-I Motherboard - LGA1155, 6 sata ports, 16GB memory capability, etc.

I picked up a I5-3570K @ Microcenter for 169$ retail box and 16GB of ram for 89$.

I was thinking I would get a I3-3220 for 120 but I couldn't pass up the deal on the 3570K.

I have about 12 Hitachi A7K000 drives - 6 of which I'll use for the new build and 6 will be spares.

All and all I think I'll break even once I sell my 490.

Amazon should deliver the powersupply tomorrow, can't wait!

EX470, X2 3800+ EE SFF, 2GB, 1x500GB Seagate, 1x1.5TB Seagate, 2x1.5TB Samsung F2 <- SOLD
EX490, Q8400S, 4GB, 3xSamsung F2 1.5TB, 1xSamsung F2 2.0TB, Debug Board & Cable <- For Sale: See Marketplace
