I've read a number of posts on here about buying the cheapest hardware (within reason) as the WHS is just for storage. I can see the point of this but there are some cases when teh server might need a bit more punch.
In my set up I have 2 media Centers that record (one with 2 tuners), another client Media Center, a desktop PC and an xbox 360.
It is fairly likely that I will be recording 3 TV programs at once and be watching 2 programs.
It is possible (although not that likely) that I will be recording 3 shows, watching 3 shows, listening to music on the xbox, listening to music on the desktop and workign with files in some way on the desktop.
That is a LOT of disk activity. In my server at the moment I have a RAID with data striping set up to try to improve disk performance.
Is WHS set up to be able to cope with these high demands? What can I do to help this (I have gigabit LAN).
I have 6 disks in my server which will all be added to the storage pool when I move to WHS.

I don't think the min specs would handle a few pc's moving files around, streaming or backing up.
I would get:-
Athlon 64 3200(2GHZ) or better(dual core), Intel Core2duo;
1 GB ram or better;
Gigabit on the network, all devices, with jumbo frames enabled;
video min spec; and
SATA 2 drives.
I suspect performance of WHS will improve with RTM. If there is any debug code, it will be removed.
Just my 2 cents......

I think you'r going to have trouble even on gigabit, with 6 video streams and 2 audio streams running, plus backups, balancing and duplication!
