What's the purpose of the server? Is it a file server? Energy efficiency is more important and most home servers don't need 4GB.

If so, this a better build:
$40AR ECS A740GM-M: http://www.directron.com/a740gmm.html
$45 Athlon 64 LE-1620 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103198
$34 AR 2x1GB GeIL DDR2-800 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144047
$30 AR EarthWatts 380: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371005
$100: 640GB WD AAKS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136218

$250 and choose your own case.

If you want a dual core CPU: $70 Athlon X2 BE-2350: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103231
