Nice one guys ;)

VMware ESX should be the base OS with windows 2003 64bit running as a virtual alongside linux etc.
Seems like a big waste of 8GB ram and 8 or so cores.
The other oversight seems to be the lack of SAS drives. Disk I/O is incredibly important when virtualising, particularly when you have multiple VM's residing on the same physical disk. SATA is inadequate for a server of this nature.
Lastly, where is the 4th SATA drive...I see only 3 external bays, is the other on an external SATA connector or internally mounted?
Explanation please...as it's an interesting project.
....sorry to be picky, but you want to build a cheetah right, not an elephant.
