I'm trying to build a home file server or cloud, and I have no experience running a server of any type, I don't even know if I should use windows 7, 8 or windows server.
I was thinking about the intel atom as it's fanless and low power, but it's 32bit.
Then I looked at the cpu first and I was looking at the Intel Core i3-3220 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 55W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500. Don't know which motherboard.
I'm really open as long as overall it's low wattage per month and any advice would be really helpful.
