i been using an old mini-itx mainboard for many years with no problems, 
they are cheap and handle server stuff easily.  power supplies are the 
hardest thing for me to keep alive, so opt for a good supply with a ball 
bearing fan.
probably your most expensive item will be memory if you want alot but 
small amounts of memory IE 2gb isnt too bad on the wallet.
