Post Time To Upgrade
It is about time I upgrade my ESXi box. This time instead of having external storage, I'm thinking of having everything in one and use the onboard SATA with RAID 5. What do you think of my planned setup? Any way to save a few buck somewhere? The WD Reds are my most expensive purchase. Also which RAM would be better, 1600 or 1333?

Old ESXi 4.1 with Openfiler

Mainboard: GA-990FXA-UD3
CPU: AMD FX-8320 125W, 8x 3.50GHz
RAM: 4 x G.Skill Ripjaws Z 8GB / 1600 (10-10-10-30) or 4 x G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB / 1333 (9-9-9-24)
CASE: NZXT PH240 Black/Red
Video: MSI Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64bit
PS: Corsair CX600M
BOOT: Kingston DataTraveler 101 G2 8GB
STORGE: 4 x Western Digital Red WD20EFRX 2TB
NIC: Intel Pro 1000 MT Dual Port (possibly 2)
