Small footprint PC or older hardware using a OS that is specifically streamlined as Network Attached Storage. If you are just wanting to add storage to your OS then the load will be on that system instead of the NAS. The advantage of the NAS is the detached but network accessible storage media.
A little overkill with the hardware you have listed for a NAS. You could use a i486, P2/3 at a reduced cost an power consumption. As I stated you can use a discarded or retired PC, run headless therefore no video adapter, max the memory and remove any unnecessary equipment to lighten the load/power usage if desired.
