Core components as follows:

Dual Xeon Processor Server Motherboard
1 x Intel XeonTM DP 5504 2.0GHz Quad Core Socket 1366
16GB DDRIII RAM (4 x 2GB) - 12 slots on board (8 still open)
5 x 500GB Seagate Barracuda SATA2 7200rpm Hard Disk Drive (RAID 10 + 1)
Dual redundant power supply chasis (only one power supply to start)
DVD writer

I think I might have overkilled it a little bit.  Too bad I have to give
it to my customer.  It would probably make one heck of a gaming
machine!... then again, I don't play any games :-(

PS: I hear Intel is planning on releasing 6 core and 8 core processors
next year.
