    Hey mates. I'm new to all this stuff, so any advices and critics are welcome
    Also I'm from Russia, so prices are higher, and much less options to choose from.

    Сpu Intel Pentium G630, OEM
    Ram DIMM DDR3, 4ГБ, PC3-10600, 1333МГц, Crucial-Micron 2pcs.
    MB ASUS P8H77-I, H77, Socket 1155, DDR3, mini-ITX
    Case Fractal Design Node 304, FD-CA-NODE-304-BL
    HDD 1ТБ, Western Digital Red, WD10EFRX 2pcs (Raid 1)
    HDD 3ТБ, Western Digital Caviar Green, WD30EZRX 2pcs (Raid 0)
    Cpu cooling Noctua NH-U9B SE2
    PSU ATX Corsair, PSU-550TXM? (also looking into Seasonic SS-350TGM and Seasonic G550 Gold)

    All together smth like 1000 $.

    Planning to run MS HomeServer, maybe. Don't sure about it now.
    And one more question. Will this MB be able to run two separate Raid? 1 and 0? :confused:

    P.S. Sorry for my crappy english

    I'd shrink/downsize the whole lot by a lot.

    If you check out the Asus website for this motherboard, you'll see a spec page that specifies the different modes of RAID the motherboard can run. You can only run one type of RAID on any one array:
