hi guys, i have got windows home server 2011 installed on an old computer that i got my hands on, the specs are

 

pentium 4 HT 3.0Ghz OC to 3.7Ghz (LGA775)

2Gb DDR2 Memory

1x Gigabit NIC

 

i have installed the os onto a 320gb sata drive and currently have 2x 1tb hard disks in the server. Now i am considering getting an SSD drive for the OS but am also considering updating the whole build to something such as a core i3 or an AMD 4100, i dont do any transcoding or anything heavy on the CPU just it seems quite slow to load the console. Backups and network shares are very good speed wise and have no issues when streaming 10+Gb 1080P video files.

 

what are your suggestions to do as in upgrading or not?

A Core i3 will do the job for sure but you may want to look thru some of the recent BYOB posting where No_Control switched entirely from Intel over to AMD.

hmm thank you guys that is some good reading, think an SSD is the way forward and yeah i may upgrade later on after i have the SSD to an AMD system.
