I know this is not a software question, but since DC is the community I trust the most, I'm asking anyway...
I'm thinking about building my main PC at home, I want it to be a high-end type of machine that could also be used as a storage space for the household.
I'm looking for good sources of inspiration about a potential machine. I'm a great fan of ArsTechnica building guides for this purpose but their guides get updated once or twice a year now. And I'd also like advice from reliable sources (not individual preferences).
To give an idea, I'm considering an IvyBridge based system, 16Gb RAM (so I can run a couple of VMs on it), a dual-SSD (Raid0) for the system and probably a Raid6 area of 4 x 2Tb disks for storage.
Any pointer to reliable sources of inspiration will be warmly welcome!
