24x7 - Low Power Consumption – Internet Download Machine

I want to build a System that has LOW POWER Consumption.

Use:

Mostly Downloading Stuffs , Might Host Own Cloud too , Email Clients , IRC Clients , Other Internet Connected Apps



I was thinking of a Kabini System

Athlon 5350 (25 W TDP) & Some AM1 Mother Board

Again I was thinking about the Intel G3258 Anniversary edition processor (But it has Much Larger TDP)

It should be A Windows 7 Machine . Not Linux or other what nots !

But I am Here for some Advice. I already told you my requirements.

Advise me - What should I do ?


I only want to buy

Processor + Motherboard + RAM

&

SMPS (PSU) + HDD

I have the rest

Hmm; Why is power consumption a hi priority issue - - are you running off a solar powered system or portable generator?

Rising Power Prices in Our Country , And 24x7 Usage of i7 generates a lot of heat .

So For Running 24x7 I need a Low Powered Machine
