i know a lot about computer but when it come's to being a lower $200 dollars budget server i don't really know how well the server will perform.

most of the parts are from my current medium gaming pc so they won't be changed

i only want opinions on the CPU, MOBO, RAM

i think im going to do a ubuto OS or a Fedora21

This build will be good for an MC Server. Went with the Pentium because overall performs quite well for a dual core. Upped the ram to 8GB because the server can use a decent amount. MB had to be changed. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

You are going to want at least 8+ gigabytes of ram. 16 would be better. I'm not sure about the cpu, don't know how cpu intensive Mc server is. But it takes a hood chunk of ram. Also, you don't need anywhere near that much hdd space.

I'd cap it at 8 GB for a MC server unless OP is either planning to run a shitton of mods or host it for a huge amount of people; however, if it's just for friends then 4GB-8GB is just fine

don't know how cpu intensive Mc server is

not very intensive last I checked.. I've managed to get about 10 people on a bukkit server on some 7-9 year old machine

No, it will not be. For a MC server you still want a decent CPU, the one you chose sucks. a Pentium should do pretty well, for MC Intel is always the way to go as it has much better per-core performance, and MC only uses one core. I also recommend 8gb of ram, so you can dedicate 6gb to the server.
