    Need advice for building an NAS for an office of 30+ PCs

    No, 4 or 8gb should be fine with 16 being more than needed. To op: maybe look at hp micro servers or if still want to build it go with 3 or 4tb NAS or Enterprise drives. for that board a G4600 or 4560. These do support ECC memory and like many older I-3s
