3) Centralize all your Files with a NAS. Your old computer may be too slow to do anything of value, but it is probably more than capable of functioning as a File Server. There are many good free and open source NAS systems that are relatively easy to install such as FreeNAS and OpenFiler.
would that do the trick
and would i need a 2nd monitor or is there a way i can view what's happening and going on

Hi,

Yes, there are a few ways to do this: Remote Desktop is one way, and TeamViewer software is another.

I've been experimenting with TeamViewer recently and have found it to be very easy.

Regards,

LogMeIn works much better than TeamViewer, but you really don't need to worry about connecting directly to it. Have you considered WHS 2011? It's actually quite cheap and has some very nice features for exactly what you want.
