Have fun building :-)

For storage I've got 2x 1tb drives on a mirrored array. Most decent motherboards will support raids now without a raid card - yay! I've had PSU's melt/go on fire previously but the hard drives have always been fine. So I am not too concerned with them in the same case.

Also, Google drive can now be paid for in pounds, so makes it dirt cheap for cloud backup.
