I am Looking to build a Linux home server box from the ground up for my family and I. Id like the server to support file sharing, media streaming, print, virtualization, and remote desktop services. I don't anticipate needing it for any more than 3 or 4 people at any one time.
My question is... Would there be much benefit in spending extra $$$ for a server motherboard/CPU? or would the load simply not justify the extra cost?
Also, as this is my first build I'm a bit unclear as to what kind of power draw I should be targeting. What would be a reasonable power draw for a system like this (and still have it operate well)?
