"What goes inside a computer case matters more than the case-- but a nice case is a pleasure to use, and it runs quieter and cooler. Here's a quick look at the excellent Antec 300.

"Even with all the nice specialized network storage devices to choose from, I still like using a PC running Linux as a file and backup server. It's the most flexible option, and I usually have spare parts needing jobs, so it's also inexpensive.

"My latest project is building a new backup server for home. We generate a lot of large files: audio, photo, and camcorder, so my chosen storage medium is big SATA drive. Or two. Or four. Or more. I already had a motherboard with CPU and RAM, power supply, and graphics adapter so all I needed to buy was a case and some hard drives. I like Antec cases and ordered an Antec 300.
