Hi, welcome to the forums!

A mini ITX server box, eh? Here's my pick, using Scan this time.

Mobo/GPU/CPU: Sapphire E350 $101
SSD: Crucial M4 64GB $71
Case/PSU: Antec ISK-100 with 90w PSU $60
RAM: Corsair 4GB 1333MHz $20

This build is a little more expensive. However it's still below budget, I do believe.

Thanks for the quick reply :) . I'm trying to find this stuff on Scan, but no luck so far with the e350 and all bare bones and ready systems are awfully over prices

Edited post above to reflect that. You can swap out the SSD for an HDD if you'd like, I put it there just because you already had an external HDD.

Definitely a viable option. I would swap the SSD for a Crucial M4, just because the Agility uses Asnychronous NAND which will bring speeds to a crawl when it gets full.

It's 259£(with the Crucial M4). A bit over my budget. Still looking for some suggestions.

P.S. Thanks striker410 for your quick replys :-)
