I've been looking at standalone NAS options lately for use with an iMac with the previous plan to get shot of my PC altogether. However I'm beginning to think that it would be more cost effective to keep the PC and configure it as a server with the same functionality, if not better. The PC is a P4 3Ghz, 2Gb memory with various PCI cards attached. I would remove the AGP graphics card, FireWire & Soundcard and set the BIOS to max power saving to keep running costs low. The server would be use for media streaming (to XBOX and possibly Apple TV in the future) and other storage. Also It'd use it as a BitTorrent client that can be left running 24/7 (something I was not prepared to do with the iMac, even though it'd be more than capable). I would probably leave Windows XPSP2 on the PC and connect to it via Terminal Services. Using Windows would allow me to run iTunes on it as the main iTunes server which the Apple TV and the iMac could connect to (I assume this is possible?) In terms of file sharing from the PC, I guess my only option is a CIFS/SMB share type? Are there better options to integrate with the Mac? Just wondered if the above is feasible and if anyone else has done something similar, or if there are better solutions? Cheers, L.
