But he's an architect/designer aswell hence why he has such a powerful system and I recommended a quadro. The 8950gt's will be released it would be better to just sell his current 8800GTX then and then sli 2 8950's if he is going to do sli it only gives you at max a 40% performance boost

You may want to consider getting a network storage rack and place it in the attic or you could buy a dummy build and fill it with cheap basic components in a large case e.g.

mobo: amd with on-board graphics am2 board
cpu: 3600+x2
ram: some from your current system
hdd's: 10x500gb in raid5 this will mean 4.5tb of storage as raid 5 is the total hdd space minus the largest drive in the array, Raid5 allows for data security as all the information is striped between the rives and mirrored so if one drive breaks the ata is not lost and you can put a new 500gb in the raid array and it will repair the array buy using the smaller back ups on every other drive
