Thanks for the tips, here is the barebones system:


Here are the slots it has:

Expansion Slots
AGP 		None
PCI Express 	1 x PCI Express x16 / 1 x PCI Express x 1
PCI 		2

I was trying to find a case that wouldn't look too weird in my entertainment center, with out having to do 2 machines and hiding one in another room or whatever.

I may have to stagger the cost out, just get the 1 hd for now. Thanks again for the input!
