Hello, Im looking to build a server for my home that will run ESXi and virtualize Server 2008r2 and FreeNAS. I mostly want this server for doing backups and streaming movies and music to my Apple TV and Xbox360, and possibly set up a small Minecraft server for me and a few friends. The hardware I have already is a 250W power supply, a case, DVD drive, Hard Drives. My question is do you think this motherboard/CPU:

Thanks
