I'm looking for computer which I could buy for £300. I want to use FreeNas software for sharing files in my home network which has 4 users and also it would be great if the PC would support 8TB HDD as I want to buy 2x8 in the future for this purpose. Also it would be good if the computer would be silent as it will be located in my room and small as I don't have that much space in my room. I have searched a bit in the internet and it looks like 4GB of RAM should be efficient for my purpose even tho that FreeNAS has 6/8GB of Ram in system requirements. -> FreeNas Forum Click.


So can someone recommend PC for this purpose ?

I appreciate every help.

Sorry if I snap at you. I can't stand stupid for more than 5 minutes at a time.
