Build or buy home server?

I was thinking of get a windows home server to back up our home network. So far I was thinking of 2 prebuilt ones:

http://www.amazon.de/Aspire-easyStore-H340-Server-Tower/dp/B003D8QD2A/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&s=ce-de&qid=1277587337&sr=8-11 Not specifically that one but just aspire easystore's h340 in general. Still trying to decide on a good size.

OR

http://www.amazon.de/Asus-Server-Intel-Windows-schwarz/dp/B003AOYKX6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=ce-de&qid=1277587431&sr=8-1 I prefer the Acer though due to the more HDD bays since I will definately be adding more.

So would you guys chose one of the above or a home built one.

I'd prefer building one myself but the problem is I can't really find a home server mobo or a nice case. Any suggestions?

All help is welcome :D
