|Hi. Thanks for your time.|
I propose two Motherboards in one case. I have this nice little Windows 7 machine. At least I thought it was until got home and opened it to find it had so IDEs or PCI slots that didnt already slot essential gear. They wired in no spare slots. Two SATA plugs. Also the PSU is maxed out (I assume. only one more plug left).. BUGGARS..There went the hopes of doing what I wanted with this "cheap" computer
Anywho. So I trolled about the idea of making a nice headless server made only of drives. Then I found this motherload of a case. BIG old refurbished IBM office tower from the early 90's. Houses a P3.
This would solve my problems. with regard to running cables all over the house.
Heck I'll even probably try and disassemble my linksys and mount it there too.
I paint trains for a living, so refurbing this plasic monstrosity will be easy for looks.
My question ultimately is; Any forseen problems? I want to run my 7 machine paired with a P3 Devul-Linux or uMbatu, over a dissassembled Linksys router.. 2 PSU. One case
