    So far here's what were going to order today:

    WD2000JB 200gig hd x 2 - $110
    Intel LGA775 P4 530 3.0ghz - $181
    ABIT AS8 i862PE - $88
    Corsair Value select 184pin 512x 2 DDR PC3200 - $143
    ABIT ATI Radeon 9200SE 128mb - $43
    Geovision GV1000 - 480fps video card for 16cameras @ 30fps - $1,325

    Now, I'm not sure what power supply I should get. so help me out and pick a reasonably priced case.

    Sparkle, Thermaltake, Antec, Enermax are some good quality brands.

    Never get a thermaltake or Antec.

    Enermax is good for a desktop, but I don't think you can beat a sparkle (for the price) in a server.

    If cost isn't a factor, then check out PC Power and Cooling.

    Thanks for the reccomendations. I have an Antech soho case @ home, so I'm kind of partial, but I really wanted to see how big of a power supply I was going to need.

    I ended up going with a 400. Guess we'll see how everything works out.
