Yes, I should probably do this anyway.  (One option I've considered is 
using a laptop as the server, as these are engineered for low-power 
usage - except for the power-brick ...  That is a more expensive 
solution, and a little less expandable.)

This is off-topis for this list - but any recommendations for efficient 
disk drives?  What would be involved in installing a 2.5" laptop drive 
in a desktop system?
