Submission + - How to Build a Low Power Home Server?

thetartanavenger writes: My home server is at the end of it's tether and in desperate need of an upgrade, but this time I'm wanting to do it right. All it does is act as a file server and a few other low-usage daemons so processing power is not important here. As it's an always on server I'd like to minimize it's power usage as much as possible, at the very least when not in use, so I was wondering in which direction the community would recommend to do so. Expandability is essential so a large number of SATA ports are a must but other than that what hardware would you go for?
