Default dual xeon server build

~1000-2000$ budget for a computationaly intensive server. I need the following:

-2 xeons (quads preferably)
-more than 12 gigs of ram (non FBDIMM <-- if possible)
-motherboard
->and a case if its a strange form factor (not atx, eatx)
-cheap PSU
-cheap ~500gig hardrive

... and a store that sells it all!

thanks in advance :)

My System Specs

Default

Motherboard: =$400
NCIX.com - Buy Supermicro X7DCL-I-O Dual LGA771 XEON/ Intel 5100/ FSB 1333/ PCI-E/ V&2GBE/ ATX Server Motherboard - X7DCL-I-O In Canada.
CPUs: $440x2 = $880
NCIX.com - Buy Intel Xeon E5420 Quad Core 2.50GHZ LGA771 12MB 1333FSB Harpertown Retail Processor W/ Active HSF - BX80574E5420A In Canada.
RAM: $75x6=$450
NCIX.com - Buy Kingston KVR667D2D4P5/2G DDR2-667 2GB ECC/REG Server Memory - KVR667D2D4P5/2G In Canada.

That's at around $1600 before taxes so far.... so just add a cheap case, $100 PSU and hard drives/optical drive.

alright what do you think of this:


Del Item Description In Stock Part # QTY Price Ext. Price Kingston KVR667D2D4P5/2G DDR2-667 2GB ECC/REG Server Memory In Stock 22301 $74.97 $449.82 Intel Xeon E5420 Quad Core 2.50GHZ LGA771 12MB 1333FSB Harpertown Retail Processor W/ Active HSF 2-5 Business Days 27480 $441.72 $883.44 Supermicro X7DCL-I-O Dual LGA771 XEON/ Intel 5100/ FSB 1333/ PCI-E/ V&2GBE/ ATX Server Motherboard 2-5 Business Days 30063 $408.43 $408.43 Logisys PS650U12 Silent 650W ATX 12V 20/24 Pin 120MM Fan Power Supply In Stock 28140 $77.06 $77.06 Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB SATA2 3GB/S 7200RPM 16MB Cache NCQ Hard Drive OEM *IR-$8* In Stock 18413 $75.99 $75.99 LG 16X Black DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM IDE UDMA33 INT OEM In Stock 8984 $25.50 $25.50 Antec Three Hundred Mini Tower Gaming Case 300 ATX 3X5.25 6X3.5INT No PS Front USB & Audio In Stock 29812 $79.81 $79.81
total comes to 2000.05$ --> i'd like to decrease the price if possible, are there any of the parts that have the same specs but are cheaper because they are a lower brand name? Any case would do but i want it to be mid form factor with atleast two 120mm front fans. none of the brand names matter as long as its the same specs but cheaper
