Hello,

We'll I'm finally taking the plunge and building a  high performance
64 bit AMD system. Oh, but the company paying for it insist upon 
windozXP 64bit, just in case Gentoo does not work. I'm really surprise
some vendor is not listed on gentoo.org, as it'd make this purchase
more straightforward, and It'd be a great opportunity to support Gentoo.
Any 'off the shelf' system recommendations, or  should I just purchase
pieces? (Reasonable vendors that build systems and perform Gentoo 
installation here in the US?)

What's the best 64 bit processor choice for performance for Gentoo? 
Dual-core?
Complimentary ram specs?

Mobo recommendations (lm_sensors and acpi support) in a 19 inch rack?

N+1 redundant power supply recommendations?

10/100/1000 Ethernet support?

What's the friendliest  high end video card for displaying video
(fast motion) that has open source drivers? Multiple displays?

Which Sata-2 drives give good performance and size (400 G or more)?

What's the best Raid level to run for storing, searching and manipulating
tons of video, and should I get a Gentoo friendly controller or use 
software raid?

Finally which file system would one recommed for this video server
with the best, stable performance.



ideas?

James
