I would only recommend building and maintain your own server if you plan to use it within your local network only (i.e. backup server, file server, media server to all your video game consoles and laptops and computers). When you start getting into broadcasting services from a server, then you should be looking into hosting services rather than building your own server (unless you have plans to start your own mega business like Google or something).

Good luck, will cost you a lot of cash.
Cause you will then will maybe look into Racks instead of micro/full servers.
