regardless of the pool size ?

I was planning on making an atom board a file server for my home, and I have two options: soekris
net6501 2GB RAM and intel board powered by the 330 atom (says 2GB limited as well). My plans are
to use from 4 up to 8 disks, and they should be 2TB at least.

As its for home use, some p2p software and mostly music listening and sometimes movie streaming.

should 2GB be that bad, that I should drop it and use UFS instead ?

I may run any version of FreeBSD on it, was planning on 9-STABLE or 9.1.
