Keeping this in mind this mobo/cpu combo is good ...
Intel BOXD945GCLF MINI-ITX 945GC Atom 230 1.6GHZ DDR2 1PCI SATA Video Sound LAN Motherboard Retail - DirectCanada

Power supply ...
PICOPSU-120 with Power Kit Includes Pico PSU 120W DC-DC ATX PSU & AC-DC Switching Power Adapter - DirectCanada

I am using this mobo in my kitchen pc at the moment.

I am also using an earlier version of this mobo, the D201GLY2 as my server.
Here it is if you haven't seen it already ...
Multiple systems in one case

Excellent setup for a home server.

I , until not to long ago, had a great home server on a P2 333 with 512Mb ram running SME server (Linux) 24/7. This really goes to show that in a home server it's easy to jump on the overkill wagon.

The parts you listed will be almost dead silent and have a low power consumption. After reading this thread I think it's time to build another home server.
