Hello! Im looking to buy a server for minor computing. How is this one. Could I build my own with better specs for around 200?

Please define, "minor computing". The concept of a "true" server is in its name - you store stuff on it such as user details, accounts and files.

im using it to run a program called gomezpeer. They send u files and your computer processes their workload and you get paid.

You don't need a full-blown server for that. You just need a decent internet connection. There is no mention of sending you anything. Other projects are available that do similar things but this doesn't seem to be one of them. You can have the fastest machine in the world but if you still have a slow internet connection it's not going to speed up what this program does.

From the FAQ:
Each PEER in Gomez's network serves as a "beacon," running in the background of your PC, contributing its spare resources (such as otherwise wasted processing power, RAM, and bandwidth) to test the performance of Web sites.
