Looks good. Although don't you think the case is a tad small for say, if you wanted to upgrade it later?

Raspberry Pi + 8GB SD card running Debian or ArchLinux + mpd (music player daemon) will do all that for you for ~$40

No, its fine, its going to live on the shelf and just do file shareing and when I upgrade computer to a new motherboard with ddr3 im going to throw the 4GB (2x 2GB) into the the mini itx server and then as I keep upgradeing my computer eventually I will have enough parts to replace this and then I will either sell it or use it as an htpc or somthing, if it had a pcie X16 i could put my gt520 in there when I upgrade that in a year or two.

lol good point. I completely forgot about that. I guess you could use some USB HDDs, if you really wanted to go down the Pi route.
