If money isn't that big of an issue, start looking at some professional servers. Maybe consider buying a PowerEdge R410 or an R710 if you're up for that. Space for a shitton of ram and storage devices.
The only downside would be the noise. Especially when it boots up. You can turn the fans down, but they will still make more noise than a regular desktop.
R410 and R710 are ancient. He also doesn't want to buy used.

The Server currently will be used for NAS and some VMs which run some small tasks.
The Silver 4108 isn't bad but the base clock is slow (the 6700k offers higher compute capability). Check out the Xeon-D 2100 series chips, may or may not be up your alley.
*edit* the passmark score I looked at for the 4108 was referencing a dual socket setup, so I bolded my correction.
