PowerApps beginner guidance needed - lists needed? location or best practice?

So I'm looking at PowerApps and I think it looks cool, but I'm not sure exactly what order I'm supposed to try and use it.
For example, I'm looking to start a project where we document a list of old servers, describe their purposes, and associate their vendor.
Then for each server, I'd want to have tasks (or to-do lists) assigned. And, for each server, another section with documents/attachments (like read-me files or manuals).
So would I first design a giant custom list for this in SharePoint? Then create the PowerApp as a front-end to read/write to this list?
If so, then where would I put that list? Just put it in a "Projects" sub-site or something, and put the App somewhere else?

I can't address PowerApp here because I don't know it well enough to address it.

What you describe however is nothing but a SharePoint tasks list with a few additional columns that would help you meet your exact needs. So just stand back, don't do any overkill on the the assignment, it is not as complex as it sounds, and use SharePoint basic functionality and you will be fine.

As far as where to put it, again nothing special needed. You want put it where it make the most sense to put it, probably a location that the use can access the most conveniently.

Good luck...
