Minecraft Server Help

Hello, my brother wants a minecraft server. He wants to be able to hole 3-6 players without any problems. The total price of it being about $400 thatS including the OS but nothing else. I dont know much about making small servers let alone one to host a game. I would like to parts to preferably come from newegg but it doesnt matter a whole lot. Along with what brand of parts. I do know that the server should have a high amount of memory. Im not even sure a build like this is possible. Thanks

    300 dollars for a server? Quite impossible for a good one!

    not really a minecraft server doesnt require much at all, i host my own with about 25-35 people on it on my 2500K.

    this is what i would reccommend:

    GIGABYTE gz-ph1a3 case:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811233061

    a phenom II 925:

    a corsair CX430 V2 PSU:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026

    4gb ddr3 1333Mhz ram:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231253

    a 500GB 7200RPM HDD:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148701

    a scythe shuriken CPU cooler:

    a DVD-RW drive:

    a ASRock N68-S UCC mobo:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157202

    and windows 7 home premium 64bit:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116986

    all adds up to $413.91 for a great system that will be about to handle a minecraft server but im not sure if it can handle minecraft itself for that you'll need (atleast) this:

  3. what is the point of minecraft severs anyway? Sorry for going off topic..
    And I think a 300 dollar build would be reasonable, but for that price, it might be better just buying a already built computer. I may be wrong though.
