Default Finally got a new rig!

Hello!
Got a new PC today, $250 including monitor, legitimate Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8 OEM disks from Dell itself, and keyboard/mouse.

Dell Precision 490
Intel Xeon 5120
ATI FireGL V7200
4GB RAM, ordered moar from Frys
1 HDD installed, and I have one more at home, so I ordered 2 more for a RAID setup
19" Dell monitor

All I need are speakers and a wireless adaptor now D:

How'd I do? I got the PC off CraigsList, was on sale at a local PC shop. How would I add another CPU? Or upgrade the video card and add wireless adaptor w/o hitting the PSU limit? its tempermental

Thanks
Matt
