Which model Mac Mini? A new model has HDMI or Thunderbolt video output so any HDMI monitor will work or you can get an adapter for the Thunderbolt or HDMI to DVI, etc... An Apple USB keyboard and mouse or wireless keyboard and mouse will work. It comes with the system installed you simply download the server module to make it a server. http://www.apple.com/osx/server/
