Hi Tim,

The server itself isn't to demanding it will run just fine with those specs, what really matters is what the server will do, Database server, Web Server, etc..., also having fast HDD's or a SSD will make it run faster.

I would also check to be sure there are drivers for all the hardware for that Operating System. Edit: I did a check and they do not provide drivers.
GA-EP45-UD3R Drivers

Gigabyte only provides Server Operating System drivers for Server 2003 so get the maximum performance for that Motehrboard you will have to search for them. They will have to be dug up, one by one.

Good Luck
Roger
