That's probably about the worst load I've ever had on the machine other than folding. So for a basic homeserver, an Atom would be more than enough to start with, the only problem is upgrade down the road with WHS 2011 doesn't like new hardware like a regular install of Windows. You would most likely have to completely re-install it after a CPU upgrade.

I didn't take this into account. I've never used WHS, only Win2K3, but it seems to respond OK.

I would then go with a X3 AMD then... more power off the bat. Plus he could asign multiple roles (I assume, you can with Win2K3) and it would cope better.
