another question, is 1gb of ram enough for unRaid? someone told me it's good to have a lot of ram for a server. i'm thinking of doing 8gb of ram for this setup. is that overkill?
8gb is overkill, likely 2-4 gb is probably enough. The main difference is how much "other stuff" you will eventually have going - AirVideo, the SABnzbd suite of downloaders, torrents - all those things take RAM and SAB in particular seems to throw less errors if you give it a little higher than the default amount of RAM cache.
The UnRaid forums are really good too.
