i am putting together a new server to share media to other devices the server will be running linux server and plex media server i will also be using it as a torrent download box and configuring it for auto downloads

the motherboard and processor will be

Intel Celeron G540 Dual Core Sandy Bridge Processor 2.5GHZ LGA1155 2MB Cache 65W Retail Box
ASUS P8H61-M LE/CSM H61 DDR3 LGA1155 mATX PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 PCI VGA DVI B3 Motherboard

and i will add a sata card when more space is needed

what i am wondering is weather this will be powerful enough or weather it is overkill

i look forward to everyone's opinions

It will be powerful enough. I wouldn't worry about overkill, you couldnt build much cheaper.
