I'm familiar with building gaming computers however I'm not familiar with building servers. Some help would be great :).

Do I need a video card at all for a server?
How important is it to have something that is power efficient? And is that more dependent on hardware or software?

Yes of course you need a video card!

I would recommend something like a small Dell PowerEdge server running SBS.

In order to give you the necessary info, tell me, how many workstations will there be? What applications will need to be setup and run off the server if any? Will you need terminal services or VPN? How much space will you need? Do you already have a copy of SBS? Those are some of the things I will need to know to prepare something for you, let me know and I will assist you further.

I currently have a server in the office running windows server 2003, however I dont know the specs off hand so I'll get back to that but its about 6 years old.

I need at least a quad core but was thinking to get an i7. and I plan to run Eclinicalworks. I'm not sure what VPN is or SBS.

You will probably be better off with a quad core Xenon. VPN is used for anyone needing remote access, SBS is just short for Small Business Server. In a small environment, its the easiest to setup and most cost effective.
