yes the motherboard has 6 sata ports on 2 different controllers. one supports 4 drives and one supports the other two ports. the 4 port controller is better according to all the benchmarks! so make sure you plug the drives into that.

and yeah the case doesnt look that good! raidmax cases are fantastic though! Have you not seen the samurai? or the new rx-9! they nice cases! in the end thats ure choice what you like!

Your 2GB RAM is nice, i would have said thats enough for now. can always upgrade later. Annd you've got plently of advice on graphics already!^^^

Looks like a nice Computer, you may need to flash the bios for the motherboard to correctly detect some makes of Ram.
