This is just a quick question NO BUILDs needed or are planned, I plan to make a home server for my personal data and I will run a virtual machine with a little webpage, but I was wondering if I should get some new hardware eg. FX8320 or go with dual xeons. Why I'm asking is because the budget is as LOW as possible, prefferably like 150-200€ maximum excluding hard drives.

Is this still a viable build for just running NAS and around 4-5 virtual OSes? (Basically, web server, storage/NAS,minecraft server, playback on a TV, for which I would later buy a used GPU to run a few games on LOW settings, nothing big here)
QUICK SEARCH to show what I have in mind, no specific choices made yet:

I could get dual Quad core xeons and a board for under 100€, then comes the expensive part, which is the RAM.
