Primarily a File Server. I also need to build a Data Storage device also. Thanks for your help.

Since it is only a File Server you could get away with mid range MOBO, CPU, cheap Video Card or Onboard Video, 2 GB Memory, DVD drive, 500W PSU, and case.

A few things:

1. Budget?

2. Mission critical?

3. Which version of R2?
