Hello

Before buying 

How easy Can I setup a Gen8 with :

 

OS on a 240 SSD

4x HDD (2Tb or 4Tb) in RAID 5

Graphic Card  (Gigabyte Nvidia Gt 730 low profile)

 

Should I buy some specific cables ?

 

Note I have already 4x 2Tb on a synoogy DS410... which I want to replace by 4x4Tb or  directly fit 4 new 4Tb in the gen8.

I might install win 7  as I have a spear licence.

 

Thx

"RAID Support: RAID 0, 1, and 10 RAID 5 with optional 512MB on select models"

 

Drivepool rather than RAID perhaps?

so I believe  I cannot  add a graphic card and have raid 5 at the same time (as Raid5 need this P222 card) ?

 

sorry not spear ... but spare (typo...) ; spare from reusing 1 from old laptop.

The B120i in the Gen8 does not support RAID5. Due to slot limitations you could not have a RAID card and graphics card.

Why do you want a GPU in there anyway, what we really need to know is what you want to use the box for before we can start to give decent feedback...

I would like to perform some CUDA programming which need a NVIDIA graph card. (with a processor min GTX 660)

I need a new NAS.

 

We can get a new gen 8 pour £150 ($230) with VAT in the uk, I am looking to find some excuses to buy it !

The missing RAID5 is annoying because the price will now go up.

 

I do not want to over send and to stack computers (the wife effect) so I am looking for my options.
