After posting the original plan, I’ve made a few changes, highlighted below in bold

Here is what I’m thinking of getting:

  1. SUPERMICRO MBD-H8SGL-O ATX Server Motherboard : $224.99
  2. AMD Opteron 6128 Magny-Cours 2.0GHz 8 x 512KB L2 Cache 12MB L3 Cache Socket G34 115W 8-Core Server : $259.99
  3. Kingston 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR3 1600 Server Memory : 4 x $59.99 = $239.96
  4. PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 600W power supply : $99.99
  5. HighPoint Rocket 640L PCI-Express 2.0 x4 Low Profile SATA III (6.0Gb/s) RAID Controller Card : 2 x $69.99= $149.98
  6. Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB : 8 x $114.99 = $919.92
  7. Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR60GB 2.5″ 60GB SATA III Asynchronous MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) : $59.99
  8. Corsair Force Series GT CSSD-F60GBGT-BK 2.5″ 60GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) :$89.99
  9. LIAN LI PC-A70F USB3.0 Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case : $189.99

Total cost: $2,196.40

This is $77.60 more than the original system.

Any comments on the choices? I think all the components are compatible. Any suggestions?
