Windows Server 2008 R2 Performance Monitoring

I'm new to performance monitor, and see there are tons of options pertaining to counters.  I would like to get a baseline over 3 days or so for a file server/domain controller combo, as well as a sql server.  which counters do I select for each?  disks are local.  I'm looking at seeing disk IO, memory utilization, disk capacity, free / used, cpu, and network utilization.  

I see a System Performance counter already exists and resembles to what I need, but seems that options to run are greyed out.  Also, does the performance monitor window need to remain open the entire time for this to run, or is this a background service once executed will run until stopped?
