I have money, Better webserver time!

I have come into some cash and I can't let it burn a whole in my pocket.

Take a look at my current rig

I want to upgrade to something sweet.

Here are my requirements:

single processor, xeon would be nice with 1GB ram

2 hard drives for RAID 1, probably SATA, but I want hardware raid, not software raid.

Then I'd like to have redundant power supplies, are there any motherboards or cases that offer that in a tower config?

3 Network Cards and nothing else fancy.

Any Suggestions? My current rig is falling apart even though I just redid it, I think its the software RAID eating the proc.

And I want to build something, I feel great when I build something.

Also, I can't stand boxes with no PS2 ports!

Linux Journal and Linux Magazine tend to run periodic articles on "The Ultimate Linux Box" You might try checking out their sites for the latest articles. They sound pretty sweet and they tend to have some directions on building them.
