I've decided that I want to build a home server because I'm tired of carrying my portable hard drive around and would like to serve my custom pc, laptop, and htpc.

I game(wow, crysis, BF4, watch dogs), I want to stream my dvd and bluray rips, and I web develop and I'm also learning other languages. I might use photoshop for web projects in the near future.

Any questions or feedback would be awesome! I hope this is enough information to give you guys an idea what I'm doing.

OK/ Give me a few minutes and I'll get you a Xeon build. Xeons can be cheap, though.

Would you like LGA 1155 or 2011?

Actually I'm getting you LGA 1155 because 2011 is too expensive, unless you might consider expanding your budget by 200-500$?
