need help building a NAS server?

I'm pretty experienced when it comes to computers, but first time network attached storage builder. So far I have these essential components;

(1) Highpoint Rocketraid 2320 8 Channel SATA2 RAID PCI-E4 Controller - $305CAD

(6) Seagate 320gb SATA2 HDD's - $776CAD

Cost is already high, so I'd like recommendations for a quiet/cool case for up to 8 hdd's, a motherboard, ram and psu for all of it. Thanks for any input or experiences :)

Update:

and cpu...

    that could desire to artwork o.k. for domicile use. I even have a great older rig (a million.8GHz Athlon equipment with fiber-channel community taking part in cards as a firewall/NAS) at domicile - The bottleneck is in the community itself - The processor can circulate megabytes in line with 2d collectively as the community clocks megabits in line with 2d. even while all 6 laptop's in the domicile are shifting great documents concurrently the server does not break a sweat.
