I used to have a spare computer that ran Ubuntu Server when I was in college that I had as many hard drives as I had SATA ports in. Electricity is no longer included in my rent so I don't do it anymore.

An older HP quad core system with 6tb of hard drive space for all of my movies, music, and my DVR security system that records around my house 24/7.

My e8600 machine with a 1tb drive (thats awfully close to full). My brother uses it, but it stays on 24/7 and seeds/download torrents and acts as a shared network drive.

I have no reason to run a server. The family really only shares a printer and the internet and that is all handled with easy by the router.

Oh my goodness, where to even start. Yes I have multiple servers actually.

 

1x HTPC/Media server - hosts audio/video or anything media based

1x Ubuntu Linux Server - misc file server and backup server

 

Lab environment:

1x Windows Server 2003 - AD, DNS, etc (getting ready to build a new lab built on 2008)

2x Windows 7 acting as VM server (one for server/router VM's and the other for workstation VM's)

 

These are just active servers. I used to have more before virtualization came around.

I have a HTPC with ~12 TB of storage hanging off of it in eSATA boxes. It's relatively efficient so it stays on 24/7 - though I may upgrade it to save on the power bill. It's a Phenom II X3 720, 8 GB of RAM, and a GTS 250.
