New home server build

My current home server it a little outdated, so I'm looking into building a new one.

CPU: intel or amd is fine
Mobo: brand doesn't matter
Ram: brand and amount doesn't matter
Graphics: not needed
Hdd: 6x2tb(or larger, depending on cost) raid5
OS: Ubuntu server
Case: needed
Use: sabnzbd, sickbeard, SQL database for xbmc, plex server, FTP server and a little more power for future use
Keyboard/mouse/monitor not needed

Thanks!

    becareful :
    it is one of few mobo that has 6 exact same sata port thus options are limited
    case should support great cooling for 6 HDD
  3. anywhere between $1,200 and $1,600. I'm not worried about energy efficiency, anything that gets the job done with plenty of room to spare works. thanks for the replies!
  4. i forgot to put raid card... can anyone help?
    or you want to use internal mobo for raid ability?
  5. internal mobo would be fine with me
  6. thanks for the replies so far! any one else out there with more suggestions? i'd like to see a few different builds.
