So, I think I'm going to go with this suggestion.  I'm putting together the system now and I was hoping that people could let me know if they see anything that might burn me?

1X - Antec NSK2400 Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811129014
	- I read some negative comments about fans, so I thought I'd get the following 2 fans.  I was thinking one as intake and one as exhaust?  I think I was reading that the fluid dynamic fans only do exhaust well?  With the 2 fans that come with the case that'll give me 4 to play with.. surely I can find 2 that work out of those 4.

	- still trying to decide if I want to do software raid 0, 1 or no raid on these.  I'll do LVM2 for my /video parition, though.

I appreciate any feedback.  Even if it's, "you are an idiot". ;)
