I thought would share my latest project upgrading my home server. I use it as a web server, Plex server, and file server. The old ones motherboard is going out and I thought I would do an upgrade to something with a little more power than the old one and add the capability that it could handle running a game server for my son or something.
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Processor
Patriot Signature Line 8GB DDR4 RAM
GIGABYTE GA-A320M-S2H Motherboard
CORSAIR VS400 80+ PSU
APEVIA X-QBER Micro ATX Cube
WD Blue 1 TB Hard drives x3 in RAID5
It makes for a decent system on a budget for the planned use. I already had the hard drives and the rest of the components came to just under $300 before tax.
