As long as you really won't be gaming it seems fine to me. The 16 gb of ram makes sense to me since its server. See if you can find a different mobo biostar is an ok name but not great. Also cooler master is not the best brand either. Either than that looks fine
Do you plan on overclocking? Biostar is alright, but an Asus or Gigabyte might be more stable for OC. ASrock is a better cheaper board, but check the reviews as some of their boards seem to have their BIOS set to discrete by default, meaning you'd need a discrete card at first to get into the BIOS and change it.
