Having a server is nice. As you can see with mine it doesn't need to be anything super fast or anything. Hell you can build a server for next to nothing. Used parts can be your friend.
Mine does double duty due to the fact my wife does photo editing and I backup her files to one of the drives in the server. I also use it as a media server.
