I always use the same swap space as RAM.
I would for sure use LVM.  That way you can create a virtual harddrive to save your recordings to.  Myth can only save recordings to one folder.  So if you dont use LVM you would not be able to use all the storage.
This looks like its going to be one hell of a nice system.  Wish i had the $$ to build a huge system.  Once I graduate from college and get that sweet job! :)  
Good luck
