Looking for parts to piece together a file server, nothing special, only budget items, I do already have the GPU (Radeon R7 370) and CPU (CPU: i3-6100 3.70GHz), I am looking for a cheap mobo, case, power supply and memory (16 GB) to complete the build, the cheaper the better.
 
H110 mainboards are only about $30-$40 these days, and, you don't even need your GPU, as the CPU and MB support integrated video, more than enough for the anticipated usage scenario you listed...

A corsair 100R is about a $55 case last time I checked, and has two 5.25" front bays, and, 4 internal 2.5"/3.5" bays. (I'd buy it again, problem free)

An EVGA 430 watt PSU is probably $35...

RAM, find some DDR4-2133, the CPU won't run any faster anyway, and it's cheaper than 3200 MHz kit, etc.....
