hi, i am going to hopefully build a home server, but im not sure what i can get for a good price... i would like it to have 3-4 2t hdd, 1 ssd for boot and in a case like the bitfenix prodigy so i can upgrade a little later while still looking good. can some one give me a list of parts for a good build... the cheaper the better! (while still being nice)

I wouldn't bother using server grade hardware for this. I'm not from the US so I can't really help you with the specific parts.

You won't need much CPU. A core I3 should be sufficient. Mobo should have as many sata ports as possible. And 4 GB ram should be heaps.

What is your budget?

Hopefully someone else should be able to pick some parts for you.
