Solving a storage problem

I admit I may have overdone it.

Too bad my job will probably kill me before I ever get to enjoy it. Ten weeks on the road and counting.

Nice. I don't think you've over done it at all. The case for my new file server came in today.

I'm a little perplexed at the amount of SSD's. Are you using them as cache?
Core i7 920 @stock - 6GB OCZ Mem - Adaptec 5805 - 2 x Intel X25-M in RAID1 - 5 x Western Digital RE4 WD1003FBYX 1TB in RAID 6 - Nvidia GTX 460

They say that cat RAID is a bad mutha-Shut yo mouth!- But I'm talking about RAID! We can dig it!

More serioursly.. are those 4 drives that will be in RAID 0 or are you being more conservative and doing RAID 1+0 (or even JBOD if you can split up the data)?
Are you doing a big RAM disk cache with the memory?
4770K @ 4.7 GHz; 32GB DDR3-2133; GTX-770; 512GB 840 Pro (2x); Fractal Define XL-R2; NZXT Kraken-X60

Notice too, that those are SO-DIMMs... makes you go, huh?
I have nothing more to say about that.

The 32GB of RAM go into a new DTR Laptop with an Ivy Bridge and 680M I pre-ordered.

512GB of that SSD storage is going into the DTR Laptop alongside a 750GB WD Scorpio black.

The remaining 512GB will go into my desktop alongside a 2TB WD Caviar black.

Not expecting to RAID.
