4U server, 16 SATA drive bays each with 750GB drives.  About $2K in 
hardware if you can get the case cheap enough.

Cost to host monthly about $125-150 depending the amps it pulls .

Most web and colocation companies do not care about inbound, they care 
about outbound.  If you tell them you are pushing mostly inbound, they 
will let you.

Will take a few months to fill it though - use rsync with the bandwidth 
limiting command line and you won't even notice it affecting your net 

Might want to do the initial rsync while the machine is still on the 
local network however :-)
