Smile "Old Computer Parts" New Server

I have extra parts now for an extra computer and wanted to make a server out of it so i can do a file server, Dev Server - SQL, ASP.net ect. then when at Lans Can possibly be used for a Dedicated Gammig RIG.

The computer as it is now has

AMD X2 2.0GHz
2 - 4 GB memory
4 x 320 Raid 5 - Data
1 x 160 for OS

Should I just use strictly as a FS or do VM ware and do all i want, a server for each?

Or any other thoughts and opinons?

Gaming server's in vmware isn't a great idea. As your hardware is already quite lacking it's something I wouldn't recommend for modern games, as they chew up a ton of CPU time.
