Question Using old PC as game server (Modern titles, PC i5-3750k era)

So, before I undertake this project, I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions.

My old PC is an i5-3750k with 8GB ram (potentially 16 depending on if the mix goes well or not). I'm not looking to spend anything outside of trivial additional funds (read: basically none) to do this, so if it will or won't work as is, that's that. Just posting the parts list for information.

The games I'd be looking to run servers for (not necessarily concurrently, but certainly let me know if it'd work out!) are:
ARK
MineCraft (Fairly heavy modding - something like Infinity)
Terraria

and games of a similar nature. My net connection is 75 symmetric, so I don't think that'll be a problem. Any opinions? At most they'd probably have 10 players on them, rarely more than 2 or 3 concurrently.
