hey guys, i was wondering if you could look at this server build for me and tell me what you think? this is my first server, and i am wanting to build it from scratch. i'm not going to buy these parts right out, i am just testing the waters.
for context, the server is going to be pretty much for the following:
-private game server
-data storage (music, videos, other)
-VM’s pentesting, multiple VM’s will be used
i'm contemplating whether or not to have it headless. my main task in this is to build a server that is as powerful as can be with the less money possible. considering it's my first and not exactly anything but just something to mess with, i'm shooting making an enterprise server at a low cost (searching for parts is fun!), even if there are some parts that need fixing because what the hell, just gives me something more to do.
any suggestions, critiques, advice, would be great.

I'd post this in the Parts Picking Megathread, but make sure you include what you will actually be doing with the machine. If a game server, what games? How many players? For file storage/backup, how much data? What's your budget? Do you have intended operating systems? Etc.
