Thanks for the replies. I got swamped at work and finally got a chance to update my thread.
From avsforums.com, wegotservered.com, whsforums.com and smallnetbuilder.com
doesnt seem that i need a quad in the server. The streams are limited by single disk throughput, so let says 70mb/s - doubt if i will have this on throughput - peaks yes, throughput?? Additionally, if i get close to disk cache then I limited by the onboard nic. I guess only way to really find out is run two stream of heavy bandwidth and find out if it has enuff muscle.
For the server case, I am now rethinking what I should buy - I should get something that can grow, but also be quiet and cool. i looked at the antec case suggested and still want some other choices.
The AMD Mini ITX suggestion is great - and is about 75.00 cheaper than the intel setup - so i will read up here for that one here:
