"Various servers" are best handled with virtualization, and I doubt this anemic CPU / RAM are up to the task. As a learning / hobby tool - yes. As a something (with all the tasks listed) to put your business onto - no.

To have an idea how much CPU / RAM / storage you need: Build a prototype with whatever you have on hand - ten-year old C2D-based laptop / desktop will be a good starting point.

Spec-wise, the second option is much more to the task, but $600+ for bare motherboard and CPU - I will definitely pass.
 
A "Media Server" and "FTP Company Backup" need more than just one SATA port. These boards are more toward HTPC / gateway projects.

Why you're going with this form factor? miniITX would be much better option, with all components freely available.

Because I'm looking for info about this form factor. The storage is not a problem. Im more concerned with the speed of the cpu and other components. Whether they can handle it all at once.

So would you say it'll run fine other than the storage issue?

"Company" backup and torrenting seem like they should be separated. The probability of an attack is much higher for exposed services.
This backup should be via a VPN, rather than an FTP server. FTP is one of the least secure methods of transmitting anything over the net.

Ok forget the backup, i just wanna know if it'll work. That was the question. "Would it be able to run"

I really appreciate the concern, but can't you be concerned while answering the question?

EDIT: BTW, I agree with torrenting and backup being separated. Right now I'm just investigating the capabilities of the hardware.

Since I don't do any of the things you want to support, I have no opinion.

I can get the 2nd one for much less than that. Thanks a lot for your answer.
