Home Server Specification

Hi,
I'm looking at getting a Windows Home Server soon. Only for simple things like a backup drive, and a local test web server.
I'm wondering if my spec is enough, since i'm looking at building this from scratch for as cheap as possible.
So far I have:
Intel 2.6GHz Dual Core CPU

Motherboard with Gigabit LAN

350W PSU

512MB DDR2 RAM
80GB ST380020A ATA HDD
2TB USB External Drive

My main concerns are the RAM, and internal HDD. I don't know if 512MB will be enough, or if I should pay a bit more and get 2GB? The internal HDD is very slow, I just tested it with a high of around 28MB/s read speed, something that feels very slow. I know I could just upgrade after some time, but it still seems a bit slow for now?
I am hoping for this to be a slim-form PC, hopefully as quite as possible :)
Any feedback would be great, I'm hopefully using Windows Home Server 2008/2011.
