from my understand 30000 INR is about 650USD which is probably not enough to build a server with Xeon Quad + 16GB ram.

Here you go - check out this guide:  The prices have come down since this was written too:  quad core budget system

I just did a test server build to run SBS 2011 on. It's quite quick and handles exactly what I needed, at a minimal cost:

Components used:
1. Antec TWO HUNDRED S Antec Case
2. ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO:  Asus Mobo
They don't stock this motherboard anymore, but the next best board - with similar perf - integrated video that will do 1080p and HDMI out is:  New mobo options
3. Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Power supply
4. G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB  8GB ram
5. AMD Phenom II X4 840 3.2GHz AMD 4 core CPU
6. WD6402AAEX 640GB hard drive WD hard drive
7. COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus - to keep that quad core cool and for future overclocking:  CPU Cooler

All in all a really fast system. It's running Win7 64bit dual boot with SBS 2011.  you can probably trim a few components if you want, but total build price for me was under $600 USD.

You are right.  Total system cost for me was just under $500. USD  I got a copy of Win7 for free, so I didn't include that cost.  But even with say Win7 pro upgrade added on, it's still going to come in under the $650 - if not under 600 if you find sales or combo deals for the components.
