The Ultimate Linux Box... (fwd)

I'm reposting this for anyone who didn't see it the first time.  I'm
interested to hear everyone's experiences with the video, motherboard,
etc.  This looks like a good mix to me, but I'm open to suggestion.

I really like that case though.  Nobody is talking me out of it.  ;-)

Oh, and it's been a couple of weeks or so since I originally did the
math on this, which means it's likely to be a bit less expensive by

Last thing...  I forgot to mention that this would include a Logitech
wireless keyboard/mouse combo.

...on a budget.

How's this sound for a nice workstation?

Chenbro SR103 case (http://www.chenbro.com.tw/product/product.jsp?p=2&s=203)
550W Power supply
MSI K7D Master dual Athlon motherboard
(2) AMD Athlon MP 2200+
1GB ECC Registered PC266 DDR RAM (2 x 512MB)
All-in-Wonder Radeon 8500DV 64MB
(2) 120GB ATA/100 7200RPM hard drive
(2) IDE Mobile Rack
3ware 7000-2 2-port ATA/133 IDE RAID Controller
16x DVD
48x12x48 CD-RW
3.5" Floppy drive
Sound Blaster Live! 5.1
RTL8139C network card

Oh, and lots and lots of fans, plus round cables for all the drives.

The whole thing is $2800(*), with Linux pre-installed.

These are more-or-less the specs I would be using if I were building
my next box today.  (I say "more-or-less" only because I already have
the DVD drive and a 40x burner, for example.  I have no reason to
replace those.  :-)

* Prices subject to change without notice.  Exact specifications may
  vary depending on availability.  Blah, blah, blah.
