    Could you please post more specific requirements? And the best solution is to rent a VPS in a general use case. It's more expensive but saves a lot of trouble. Sep 26 '19 at 8:12
  • Well it has to be a physical server due to the College policies, its going to be used for file storage and transfer mostly it wont be used to host games just store them as of right now but my question is what type of server as in CPU speed and ram would be the best to use Sep 26 '19 at 8:18

    Any old machine which can run your OS of choice will do. But it's better to get dedicated hardware. Sep 26 '19 at 8:22

By your comments you are looking for a Network Attached Storage. Instead of buying a regular PC, buy a dedicated device, like one of these QNAP NASes.

If you absolutely must do it yourself any PC which can run your OS of choice would suffice for a small team. What you may want if you are going with Windows is to get a motherboard which supports RAID and use it.
