Thank You for the detailed answer, it's really educational. I've been
reading Atom's description today on tom's hardware, and there it's also
described in the way You have described it.

I was thinking about using RAID because I was worried about backup space
and speed for data transfer on the hard disk since there's a lot of data
to be stored - about 1GB for a case with 175 000 finite volumes case.
Now that I'm more informed I think I'll listen to You and Mr. John
Hearns and go with standard issue CPUs and mboards and, besides that,
whatever forgotten attic/basement hardware I can get my hands on from my
   Well, as I've said - I don't really know much, yet. I can only hope
for patience with my newbish questions/statements, like the one
regarding the power consumption for the miniITX - if it's PSU can give
out 90 Wats, that doesn't mean it will be spent. :)

Thanks again,
