I need a build for a Linux Home Server. I want to keep it around $300-400, preferably $300 area since I just built a gaming PC. This is what I came up with? Any changes? Is this overkill?

Seems okay to me. Obviously it's only for a home server so you don't need to spend much more than that.

Do you think I could swap the i3 for the Celeron or Pentium?

Could do but the i3 will have better performance. It depends what you are using the server for.
