HI All,

I have a dilemma and I would appreciate advice

1. Get a good size case, mobo, processor, etc and put 8 hard drives it in and RAID them. (yes an 8 port SATA mobo). Running CentOS.

or

2. Get an eSATA enclosure that has room for 8 or 10 drives and just connect it to box?

I know that RAID is not a full proof backup, but I am looking for a solution to store all of my data, projects, music, etc, etc

Can I get thoughts for ideas for solutions?

Thank You
-Jason
