So I have my whole cart picked out, and on black friday I will be purchasing my new rig, SO EXCITED!!  Let me know what you think. =)

I do a lot of video encoding, folding@home and use lots of intrusive programs, home media server, home fileserver, and I backup all my webservers, home computers, and the family business's computers (about 15 total) so alot of data, as well as a lot of processing.

Comes out to about $1200 with shipping. What do you think? Any critiques?

O ya, running windows 7 professional 64bit

The SSD comes with a 3.5 inch bracket, it works well.
Why the NIC?

Going to be running a vm sometimes for VPN, which requires dual NICs

3.5 OC on any Thuban isn't a big OC by any means so if i were u i'd stick to a half decent air cooler instead of H50 and for a non gamer i'm not sure a $160 Full Tower is in order - hit something like a CM HAF 912? Choice of SSD: 60GB Sandforce based and just with IGP any decent 80+ 380-500W PSU would suffice as well instead of a $120 750Watter
