    Looking for a server with below spec in Europe

    CPU: Intel Core i7-4820K @ 3.70GHz or Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz
    RAM: 32 GB
    HDD: 1 x 4TB

    I need lots of HDDs, this is a backup and rendering system at the same time, so once I fill a 4TB HDD, I need to add another 4TB HDD, So I think 6 HDD slots is sufficient for me and I can scale it in long run.

    port: 1gbit
    Bandwidth: 10TB
    OS: Windows 7 64bit ( if available and you support it that would be fantastic) or Windows server 2003 standard 64bit

    budget: $300-$350

    You would definitely be best off making sure your provider puts you in a hotswap 8 bay chassis. That way all they have to do is pop a new drive into the server when needed and mount it. For stability though, I would stick with an E3 processor which can meet those same speed requirements as long as you get the right one ie E3-1270 or 1290 v2 or v3.

    Windows 2003 is also no longer supported, if you want an OS that is close to windows 7 you would be best going with 2008 or 2012. However 2008 is pretty rock solid at this point.

    By the Microsoft agreement, it is not possible to install Win7 on dedicated servers. You will not find any reputable data centers that offers OEM versions of Windows.

    Windows 2003 server standard is 10 years old Windows version and it is too old for new hardware.

    Is there any reason why you don't want to go for Windows 2008 R2 or Windows 2012?

    Those are all the ideas about web hosters? Selling cheap (and hosting a lot of spammers btw) is not something that should make one to sign up.

    @CyberKeys Your budget looks OK. YOu just need to go find few web hosts, to compare networks, support and to negotiate a a service that could be scaled up. I'd suggest you to go for server chassis with 2.5 inch hdd. It would fit in 1U, which is important from the web host perspective.
