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?
Would this work? (
