Debian for server use (and desktop as well). And there is no such thing as a "dedicated" server build, you can do (about) anything with any distro.

I think you mis-read a post. Nobody asked about a dedicated build.

Shout at me if I'm assuming wrong

The answer is right in your post. You said "But I need a server build". And I was just saying that you can use about any distro as server. I was not posting that as a correction either, I was just posting that for information.
