Sounds real sweet Tony! Wanna come do mine too...
I'd check your need for the 400W PS first though.
I thought I needed to change mine until I added up the run time drain and
the peak (startup) drains on my system. I found that the 350W was enough
because the newer disks suck in a lot less current that the older units.
The EIDE units are pretty good.
Also don't forget that the CD and DVD won't be spinning
or working while the rest of the drives are spinning up.
You can also put a spin up delay on some drives to load balance the
startup drain (look for jumper setting on drive controller).
Might save you $100 or so on the rebuild...
ps - I've got 10gb, (2) 80gb, and 160GB Eide drives,
dvd-rom/cdrom, dual level dvd writer connected to Asus MB
with 1GB DDR and P4 2GHz, 10/100 Nic, 1394 2socket, USB 2.0
4 socket, WinTV card, Nvidia Geforce 4 MX440 video
and I just popped out a Tekram SCSI card and 2 20GB SCSI disks.
This all ran fine with the A-Open 350W PIII compliant supply I've got.
(the Asus MB has an adapter for P4 on P3 supplies).
Only reason I pulled the Scsi card was that the disks were getting old
and the bearings on both were starting to scream, time to retire them.
Now I need to replace a couple of fans as well.
