Here's what I ordered:
AMD Athlon 64 3000+, Venice, 512KB L2 Cache, Socket 939 - Retail
DVICO FusionHDTV5 Gold Plus, HDTV Tuner Card, ATSC, QAM
MSI RS480M2-IL ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 Chipset Socket 939 MicroATX
NEC ND-3520A 16X Double Layer DVD+-RW Drive (BLACK/BULK)
Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 ST3200826AS 200GB 7200RPM 8MB SATA150
SuperTalent PC3200 1G (512MB x 2) DDR400 Dual-Kit CL3
Ahanix mce302 with ahanix 400 silenx

That is after looking into things (although I might be shy on storage the ahanix has one more bay apparrantly that I can put another bigger drive into. I'll let you all know how it turns out. The only thing I had issues with is the NEC dual layer dvd. It is supposed to be quiet, but I would have preferred slot loading (so my kids can't kill it.)

Take a look at "iRAM" from Gigabyte. It´s a PCI card, plugged via S-ATA and PCI with up to 4-8GB of RAM. You can boot Windows in a few seconds, including MP. Gigabyte will sell it this month for ca. 60,-€ + RAM.

I saw pictures with PCMark04. The iRAM system had 56560 ponts there!

Here are some pics:
