Get the gigabyte b75 @4k and get the CM elite 310@1.8k and it will be inside the budget. And @harshilsharma , is 8gb ram necessary for a nas server?? Won't 4gb be sufficient ??

I included an 8 Gb ram considering the scenerio where the NAS would be streaming multiple HD movies to multiple devices simultaneously. I forgot about a wi-fi card, so opting for Gigabyte B775M DH3 and CM Elite 310 will save some cash for a good wireless card :)

@OP: why do you want to use Win 8 for an NAS? Go for FreeNAS.

what distro should i use, do u think linux mint will be a nice option?& can u recommend me a blu ray drive rather than a dvd drive because i have a small amount of blu ray collection.
 
For the pci e wireless card, get one of the below two,

D-Link DWA-525 Wireless N 150 Desktop Adapter Network Nic - D-Link: Flipkart.com

Or

TP-LINK TL-WN781ND 150Mbps Wireless PCI Express Network Nic - TP-LINK: Flipkart.com

Go for freenas , it is the best distro of media servers and nas boxes. Plus , it's FREE! A standard edition of windows 8 will cost around 6k, won't it?? Go for freenas

but i have no previous experience with BSD, SO IS THERE ANY PROBLEM IF I USE OPENFILER AS IT IS BASED ON LINUX.

^a4 's cpu performance is not so good.

THEN WHAT ABOUT FX 4100
