Hey there awww, and welcome to GeeksToGo.

I will also be buying these things 2 by 2 each month

This is not a good idea. Since computer technology changes so fast, the parts you buy at the beginning will probably be replaced with something cheaper, faster, and better by the time you are done buying everything. I strongly recommend you save up and buy everything at the same time. Please come back to us when you are ready to do so. :)

Just a few things to think about:

Intel Core 2 CPUs outperform the AMD Phenom CPUs, and this probably won't change in the coming months. Of course they could pull out some surprises, but I don't think either company has anything big planned until late 2008/early 2009.

You don't want a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard drive. You need a special SAS controller to use these, the cheapest of which is $630 on Newegg.

The rest of the things I won't comment on as they are very likely to change in the coming months.

I think it is more prudent to choose a CPU based on performance rather than bias, don't you?

Again, it would be a waste of both our times to discuss specific parts if you won't be ready to purchase for several months.
