Home server

just looking to build a server for something to stream HD movies to multiple tvs around my house and access it through my mobile phone.
What are the kind of specs will i need for it to be able to stream them fluently? budget around 1000 NZD
so far i have come up with this:
i5 3570
asus p8- h77-M-LE
8gb kingston ram 1600mhz
3tb seagate baracuda 7200rpm
coolermaster centurion 5 as the case.
Corsair 550W VS550- i've got this much power because i might want to add a graphics card later to game on but i read a server doesnt require a graphics card?

Will this do the trick as a server? anything wrong with it? i know my stuff about gaming pc but servers is all new to me.

thanks for any replies

  1. I will admit outright I also only really know gaming/editing machines, this isnt my strongpoint.

    I know that when it comes to NAS (network Array Storage) machines the CPU doesnt have to be all that powerful. A much bigger emphasis is placed on the Network Interface Card, which will have to be somewhat strong to stream movies to multiple machines.
    Have a look at the NAS build thread at the top, those are what you should be looking at.
    This may help as well.
  2. oh oops forgot about NIC, can someone please recommend me a decent one?
