NAS duty doesn't require much horsepower, so a quad-core Xeon will be plenty. Storage-wise the best route will be something like an LSI 9211-8i, which will support 8 drives. If you need more you could add another one. In fact you could hit eBay and look for a good deal on a Dell PowerEdge 510 (the 12x3.5" version). That's assuming you don't mind going rackmount.
