I would go with something like an AMD APU or an i3, 4 GB ram.. maybe a pair or 3 HDD's in raid and thats pretty much it (obviously a case psu and motherboard) but you really don't need a whole lot.. especially as it's just sharing files rather than streaming video etc itself.

Hell an old core duo or the like should be plenty..
Well, I expect 3-4 people to be connecting and running from the device at the same time.

Would there need to be transcoding to play everything on the multiple devices around my house?
