My current server setup:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0GHz
Asus M2N-E SLI, nForce 500
Crucial DDR2 PC5300 2048MB CL5
Sapphire Radeon X1950PRO 256MB GDDR3
4 x 2TB WD sata2 hdds
450W PSU that came with the old Chieftec cabinet I'm using.
My new server:
Approximate Purchase Date: Sometime before spring.
Budget Range: no more than 800$

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS)

I've looked at some onboard cpu solutions like the asus E45M1-m pro motherboard,
but I'm afraid that it wont be strong enough for my transcoding. Any thoughts?
I don't really need any mentionable graphics. I'll barely use a monitor anyways.
