it will run basic file-sharing, iTunes home sharing and Minecraft server. (I would prefer to stick to intel)

An old pentium could handle file sharing and itunes, server requirements for small home networks use peanuts. Minecraft i have no idea what's required of the server, if you could provide me some more info i might be able to help better.
