Hello, A few months ago, I built a system for personal use, and I decided to try and build another one for server hosting. I haven't built it yet, but I made it on PCPartPicker to see possible parts, and I was wondering if I could get some feedback on the build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/49hXFG (BTW, I'm on a budget of $650).

Thanks in advance!

What do you plan on hosting on this server? What operating system? Is it going to be turned on 24/7? Is it going to use containers or virtual machines?
 
This will be a bit more balanced for most things. If the added RAM isn't needed then going to 16GB will save a few bucks.

Im gonna host servers for various games to play with my friends. Its gonna run a linux distro(havent decided which) and it is gonna be on 24/7. Its probably gonna run containers rather than vms.

You will probably want 32GB RAM then just to be safe. I would also say that depending on the size of everything, having 1TB NVMe will be better just due to IOPs. It is $124 for the 1TB SN550 which is a very good budget SSD.

Just to add on, you can save $35 by opting for a 1600AF as the CPU as there is almost no difference compared to the 2600 and is priced at $85. Also, not sure why you wouldn't just use the stock cooler.
