Building an Ark Server

I want to build a computer that will be able to run an ark server. I don't need anything super fancy just something to play ark with a couple of buddies. I want to be able to host approx. 10 people and I would also like to be able to host a teamspeak server. I have been looking around and it seems that amd tends to be a little cheaper. I don't want to spend a ton of money. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful thanks in advance. Also if anyone has any suggestion on an os that would work for this I would greatly appreciate it.

Whats your max budget? I'm not familiar with ark but I do know its not well optimized still If I remember correctly. So you would need some nice cpu power to make sure it can calculate everything properly, so to speak that is.

I don't know I'm hoping to not spend a ton. Also half tempted to pick up a new mobo and cpu for my gaming rig and use the m5a97 and fx-6300 out of that to make a server with.
