I'm looking into building a PC for a 4-camera security system. The cameras will all be wired.
Currently, for $240, there's the Amcrest 960H security system. They charge about $25 for each camera and include wires and other stuff, so let's say their build costs $140. It includes a 500 GB HDD and that's all I could find out.
What build would y'all recommend for recording video feed from 4 surveillance cameras?
Budget: <$300. No OS or peripherals required. The cameras' resolution is about 900x480 and would be filming at 15-30 fps.
I'm thinking the mainstream stuff would be cheaper. I don't know of any G4400 build that has a mobo which can connect 4 cameras. I'd prefer to build the system on my own because it'd be more reliable and because I'd know exactly what parts it contains.
