Greetings all,

I am new to this forum but think it looks pretty good from the bits that I read so far. Anyways I am planning on building my first computer from scratch and want some insight on what hardware I should use. The following is what I am looking for in a build.

Functionality:
I want to build a desktop computer that I can use for backups, media storage (with remote access), maybe host a small website and run 2 -3 VM's on it. So I was thinking it would be a hybird normal use computer/server. Is this even possible? If so what hardware would I need to do this?

Price:
Price is not a major concern, I mean i dont want to take out a loan for this thing but I also dont want it to not be useful to me down the road.

Space/cooling:
Where should I keep this bad boy? Should I build A custom case? House some stuff separate?

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated in advance!

Thanks,
CB

We need some sort of price frame so we know what to work with.
