[mythtv-users] Backend hardware advice please

I have been playing with MythTV for a while and would now like to move
the backend to a 'production' build. So before committing my hard earned
cash and decreasing spare time to poorly speced machine and nightmare
build, I thought best ask the experts! 
I intend to run a backend only on Fedora Core 5 or 6, there will be 4
pci capture devices (2 x DVB-t and 2 x PVR-150's), initially there will
be three hard drives (250GB each, 2 x SATA and 1 x PATA) configured with
software raid 5 - although this may expand so more than two SATA ports
would be good.
I am really not bothered about Intel V's AMD from processor perspective
or 32bit V's 64bit, just a working system at the end!
So does anyone have a similar set up and can advise on hardware?
Cheers in advance.
