I have gone the desktop route in the past and it is workable but is
not as scalable as some of the server class machines.

I have pretty much decided on the following:

Quad Core Intel(R) Xeon 2.0GHz, 1333MHz FSB
Memory 	4GB
Hard Drive 	Mirrored 146GB, 3Gbps, SAS, 3.5 inch, 15K RPM Hard Drive
Network Adapter 	Dual Embedded Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet NIC

My only concern is whether the SAS drives will be supported.  Any thoughts?
