alright, after listening to your posts and looking it up. RAID is the way to go. That still leaves the question of what mother board.
Here is what i have so far:
nice steel (dissapates heat) and fan options, not to mention lots of drive bays.
RAID: no idea, don't understand what is good...
Motherboard: well guess it depends on the RAID interface. I've narrowed it
down to ATX
CPU: dependant on motherboard
yea... please help me with RAID
