Hi and welcome to G2G,

I don't think you need this much power to run servers, as most of them are just scripts being run on the net. Anyways I suggest THIS as a mobo thats cheaper, but however if your going to be running such intense software you might as well go with the 750 or above chipset like THIS one perhaps. Everything else seems to be fine.

The difference between anything OEM and retail is that OEM parts come with just the part in a plastic bag and retail ones come with the packaging and extras. Retail ones also have manufacturer warranty whilst most OEMs don't.
