Questions on first WHS Build

Hi all

long time listener to the podcasts and wanted to ask about an atom based motherboard for my planned WHS build.

Since DE is gone I have accepted that RAID is my best option since I already have a Highpoint RocketRAID 2320 card (pci-e x4), my question is I have found two Asus mobo's that have a PCI-Express port but the D525 board is restricted to x1 bandwidth (2.5Gbps) but the 330 atom board has a full x16 port.

would the 2.5Gbps speed be a major restriction? should i go for the atom 330?

I got my information from this page http://www.overclock.net/intel-motherboards/782316-asuss-at5iont-i-ion-2-board.html

 

Thanks in advance.

The RAID controller will not use that much bandwidth so you should be OK.
