Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: this week (the closer the better)

Budget Range: 400+, don't really have a range as I don't know how to price something as specialized as this

System Usage from Most to Least Important: File Server, Minecraft Server, Playing HD Movies (720p/1080p), Web/Email

Are you buying a monitor: No, will be connected to existing LCD TV via HDMI



Parts to Upgrade: None, full build

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, MicroCenter, TigerDirect, MWave, EVGA

Location: East Windsor, NJ

Parts Preferences: Preferred Brand - ASUS, Preferred Type - MicroATX, Mini ITX (Small Form Factor)

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: 1440x900

Additional Comments: Quiet PC, Must run cool and be able to run non-stop

Why Are You Upgrading: Current PC cannot handle my programs and running my server on top of it


Simply put, I need an Always-On Server that I would be using for Minecraft and as a storage File Server. My current concern is the parts with Ubuntu Linux and Windows 7 as my choices for the build (would prefer Windows 7 if possible). I'm trying to build it so that it's secure and certain research notes, folders, etc. are password protected.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! :D

looks like a dual core be ok but a quad core is better with atleast 8 gigs of ram.

if you are not actually gaming on this the intel HD 2000 would be good enough for graphics.
