i don't know much about servers so i need a little help. i need it to be able to host games like Minecraft, space engineers, BF4, .ect. a not as important feature but welcomed side use would be for NAS. the internet that itll use will be 30/Mb down and 4mb up. and the price cap is $1500 but if you can get cheaper that would be great.

Your internet is gonna be a huge issue, and it isn't going to matter how good your hardware is that is going to limit it and slow the server down.

What's raid 10?

Here's the tutorial.

Basically it divide the total storage of 4 HDDs into two, one to storage data and one to secure the data. Then both of them are striped, making them 75% faster.

Edit: found a better guide

If you were to be using this for a MC server I would use a larger ssd and fewer HDDs, if you have the map files on the ssd it will help the server a lot. If you were going to be running a few servers at a time and if they were to be larger modpacks then I might go with 32GB of RAM and an xeon processor.

Any good cheap xeons?

The only cheap Xeons are in used workstations. There is a current one that's about the same as a Core i7-4770 and costs about the same too. By definition "Xeon" and "cheap" aren't allowed in the same sentence by Intel marketdroids.
