Hello fellow geeks!

I'm sure you get this question a lot, so I really appreciate you inspecting my build. I haven't built a machine since 2002 and I'm feeling pretty rusty.

Goal: A computer capable of standard definition video processing with the ability to upgrade to render high definition video if needed. Gaming is priority number two in this case. I have a server with 2 TB for extra storage.

Power Supply
Video Card
Hard Drive
DVD Burner
Onboard sound
Already have keyboard, mouse, monitor.
OS: XP or Win7 64bit

My hope is to add another video card when I get a high definition camera. I want to make sure everything is compatible before funding newegg. Also, does anyone have any experience with SAS drives? Finally, does anyone know if the provided case will support more fans, and if so, what type, and where? It comes with 2 120mm fans but I'm worried that it won't be enough thanks to my hot tamale of a video card.

Any other thoughts/comments are welcome.

Thanks again!
