    Get youself Qnap NAS device (ie TS-219P), just my 2 cents
    It will be even cheaper than building a PC

    thanks for the opionion but i was looking at something with more power.

    i was looking at this
    AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor
    ASUS M3N78-VM AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 8200 HDMI
    Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s

    with everything i was looking at spending like 450$

    i dont know if the processor will work fine or would i need a x4 i will be doing hd streaming

    And could I ask why would you build this workhorse to just store some files & stream media?

    The recommended Qnap will do all this with no problem & you can use it for tons of other tasks at the same time if you wish.
    And the good thing is... it does NOT run Windows!
