Database and Web Server build

I am planning to make 2 servers, one dedicated to a MySQL server and another for other servers such as Apache Web Server. I was planning to make a build, both consisting of these parts (I know, should've used PCPartPicker, but some of the parts weren't on there):

CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1275V2
Motherboard: Supermicro MBD-X9SCM-F-O (MicroATX)
RAM: Kingston 4x8GB ECC DDR3-1333 RAM (KVR13R9D4K4/32)
HDD (Data): 2 of Western Digital RE4 1TB (WD1003FBYX) in RAID1
SSD (Boot/Software): 2 of Crucial m4 128GB in RAID1
Chassis: Norco RPC-231
Power Supply: Antec BP430
RAID Card: HighPoint RocketRAID 2710

So here are a few questions:
- What's a good REDUNDANT ATX-sized power supply somewhere between 350w-450w?
- I have a feeling that some of the parts here will bottleneck, will they?
- What would be an ideal internet speed for the servers combined? The internet will be shared with around 8, or maybe a few more around an office.

- This is for my dad's company which is rather small, and he wanted a server that could store his resort's residents' payment information, so it doesn't have to be anything serious.

Thanks in advance! :D

is RAID a SSD must? Take intel SSD or Samsung

Id go for a xeon 1230V2 and 1155 MoBo because they are cheaper. And no ECC memory needed.
Or maybe a xeon 1245V2

Good power is SeaSonic SSR-450RM 450W

Or did you want a passive one?

Also this is good:

Know anything about Redundant ATX-sized PSU's around 400w under 450w? This server is going to be running 24/7, and will store my dad's company's resort residents' payment information, and if we get that lost, well then that's bad news. Same with the ECC memory, but does that actually matter? In addition, I will probably go with an Intel 120GB SSD, but which one would you recommend? Finally, will the difference between a 1245V2 and a 1275V2 be noticable, and will the 1245V2 be sufficient for a web server, and a dedicated MySQL server?

Now, I've gotten everything sorted out so far, I just need to find out about the power supply, what's a good REDUNDANT power supply around 400W?
