Default Homemade "Mini-Server"

I tend to fill up hard drives really quick. I've only had my current computer a year and 4 months and the hard drive is dying from last of disk space. Oops. Most of the files are needed. So, I was wondering if I could build a miniature server using a wood box, computer fan, hard drive. The hard part would be actually building something to transfer the data from a SATA wire to a USB wire without causing problems. Any ideas? Also any ideas on where I can get a cheap hard drive?

Here's some specs for my computer:

Computer: Asus Essentio Series
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
Processor: Intel Pentium
RAM: 4.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 399MHz
Motherboard: AsusTek Computer Inc.
Hard Drive: 977GB Seagate
