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

  1. Any recommendations on a minimum CPU? or minimum RAM? I'm honestly completely lost on this subject xD
  2. 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.
