Hey Guys i am looking to really upgrade home theater system and want to build a htpc and home media server that will be accessible from 6 different locations.

my big ? is do i need a serve or will a large HTPC do?

I would like to use an old desktop PC for the server,but not sure what to look for in and old desktop.
Does the brand or make of the desktop matter?
what feature should i consider when looking at possible PC
is it possible to run an energy efficient always on media server

The server will be used as a dvr also with a TV tuner card
