A microserver, serving media to XBMC and doing a few other bits will be perfectly fine with 4GB of RAM right?

I'm looking at getting a 4GB stick and then maybe getting another in the future for 8GB. I'm not entirely sure what it'll end up doing but its gonna be doing newsgroup based stuff aswell.

I'm gonna be running mint linux, I think, so its gonna be open to adding lotsa stuff to it. Stuff like newsgroup indexing interests me, for personal use, which could be quite RAM intensive, couldn't it?

I've got 4GB in mine, running windows and torrents, live encoding, DNLA, SABnzbd, VPN etc.. runs fine, to be honest in you are not watching it do it's stuff then I don't think you have to worry too much

Awesome, now I'm back in the UK and working I was thinking I may need a 2nd microserver. Will have another look at finances in a few weeks.

edit: got a supplier link for that price? If not I'll just google around tomorrow :P

Was pricing things up early and it does work out cheaper to buy a new microserver and 4x 2TB drives than upgrade my current one with 4x 4TB.

Just bought the g8 £119.99 after cashback.

From what I have read it will only work with ECC RAM

Yeah, I heard the same. A few things to note the cpu is replaceable in this model,  so can up the power to an i3 (or higher if you don't mind being a bit more risky exceeding the 35w barrier and generating more heat in the case. Other thing to note that the built in remote management requires a licence to unlock all features, although I think you can get some cheap licences on the eBay.

The previous versions N36-N54 would be fine on Non-ECC RAM, it was just recommended.

Why do you need so much RAM in it if its just doing Freenas?
