i have recently acquired a precision 690 from dell (http://www.dell.com/us/dfb/p/precision-690/pd) it has
1. 16GB of DDR2 (8x2GB)
2. 2 x XEON 5130 (2GHZ a piece)
3. 10,000RPM SATA drive
4. No Graphics card
5. MY171 MOBO
6. 750W Power supply

i was looking to upgrading this rig to run a dual purpose as a server and a gaming rig to do the following
1. play Battlefield 2 @ 30 FPS ......(OPTIONAL)
2. Run Minecraft while simultaneously running a Minecraft server and also simultaneously record decent video...... (PRIMARY USE)
3. is it worth it to even upgrade it
4. How say future proof would you say this is

BUDGET 600$............... (i prefer not to trade out the CPU )

Any comments are welcome as i am open to new ideas or if you only answer to one of the questions.
