What's the purpose of having 2 DVD drives?

1.44 mb floppy drive? (they still put those in PC's???)

Rich makes a good point. Dell stopped selling their desktop PCs with 1.44 floppies about 1 year ago so unless you really need a floppy drive I wouldn't bother.

For a dual proc setup I would take a look at the Thermaltake Xaser III Super Tower Chassis. It's bigger than the lian mid tower, but it has a ton of fans, plenty of room, and easy access for a adding new drives. I have this case and it's solid (aluminum door/sides), stays very cool, and is built well.

It would be interesting to see how fast this machine renders. Let us know how it performs once it's all built.

Unless you're copying a lot of different DVD's I'd question having 2 drives but then again the read only DVD drives are probably so cheap it isn't a big deal cost wise!

My only advice is ditch the two 40 you are planning to stripe in favor of 2 bigger drives. They are so cheap and the price difference between a 40 gb and a 120 GB is under $30. I have 2 40gbs stripping at home (bought when they were more expensive) and am planning to swap them out for 120 as I am out of video storage that I used to archive. Also Make sure to buy a GOOD power supply, not a highwattage one but a good one. (Antec True Power is as cheap as I would go. good call for you nick) check out
