To reiterate, I recently purchased an Intel D525MW board. However, I'm not sure what RAM nor power supply I need. I'm sure I could just use one of the old ones I have laying around, but I want to use the minimal power possible as this (server) computer will be running 24/7 (restarted, on average, once a fortnight). I wish to run a minimal installation Windows 7 or perhaps Ubuntu 12.04, depending on whether or not I can get my Skype Gateway working with it. Could someone please provide me with some names (and preferably descriptions so that I know what I'm looking for) so that I could search on ebay?
I have found the following solutions for RAM
DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 (non-ECC) up to 2GB per slot (there are 2 slots)
This is all good, but I don't know much about speed/power consumption. Is it going to work out better in the long run to get x1 2GB DDR3 PC3-10600 and put it in x1 slot, or x2 1GB DDR3 PC3-10600? What are my best options?
The computer will have an 80GB, 7200rpm hard drive.. Not sure if this will have an effect on the power supply! ;p
Thank you ! :)
