Hey all, first time posting a thread on BAPC. Love the sub.
Anyway, I have a bit of an unusual goal (for this sub.) I'm setting up a basic personal secure PC/server. This PC has a specific purpose: Check secure email, potentially upload/transfer ePHI (patient data), and potentially also secure online shopping/bitcoin/etc. The last one I may prefer to just use boot drives on my current PC.
The data doesn't need to be backed up or saved in duplicate via a RAID or anything, I'm just using the PC so I can communicate with other clinicians or work on write-ups from home, etc. Oh, and I'm very interested in potentially doing a health technology project later which would be optimized by my being able to store ePHI at home, including video/voice recordings.
I'm doing this because I don't want to go through the trouble of encrypting (and slowing) my current PC. Setting up an encrypted virtualized partition/OS is not sufficient (has to be whole-drive encryption.) It's institutional/governmental rules, not mine.
I've seen a few all-in-one setups ~$450 and a few basic PC setups for $350, but I can't think of much cheaper than building myself.
Last thing, I'm currently planning on going through my university to purchase Win7Ult or Win8Pro, but I'm also considering a Linux or *BSD distro, but I'm not sure if that's necessary if I have the complete drive encrypted. I don't think I need to do a double-hidden partition thing, either. Nobody's gonna try that hard to steal my patient data. One of the main factors will be ease of use and security for transferring files from my SGS3 to my secure PC (from the hospital, without using another computer, unless you know of an easy way to automatically remove files from an encrypted droid and upload them to the computer via usb... could be useful.)
Would love some suggestions, especially as to the OS choice, software for secure upload/download, or if I'm missing either similar performance for a lower price or higher performance for the same price. 1TB+ storage is necessary.
I'd describe my computer proficiency as... can do some programming, have played around with some SSH/FTP, etc., built a PC once a while ago (no issues). Not an expert otherwise, by any means.
Thanks y'all!
Random extraneous factors: PCPP recommends some online stores that don't price shipping up front, so I removed those stores. Not worth my time to try and optimize shipping costs by going to their cart every time. Also, I know I could trim off an extra $40-70 by downgrading to 1GB or 2GB RAM and a smaller HDD, etc., but I think there are diminishing returns on that level of frugality. Parts were chosen mainly by lowest price on PCPP, except with the rule out of very low performance (Essentially
