Default Building a pc- isn't it fun?

To those who responded to my earlier posts, I must sound like a broken record. Anyway, I've decided to build a powerful, multipurpose PC, good for gaming and 3D Rendering. I'd really appreciate advice, criticism, insults, whatever. Here's what I've got in mind:

TYAN Tiger i7505(S2668AN) motherboard

2x Intel Xeon 2.8 GHz CPU's

and the ATI Radeon 9800xt that I already have

What case should I get? HD? I'd like both a DVD drive and a CD-RW, so what's the best brand? Thanks, and sorry if I'm boring you.

Get one of those see through cases with the neon lights in them. That would be awesome. I wanted to get one, but they sold out when I went And I spent the money on other things.

That is a great computer. However, you should really consider getting a Pentium M 755 and pairing with the new DFI 855GME-MFG motherboard. It is a great overclocking board. That is what I'm using for my SQL/Oracle server except mine will be on a Pentium M 725 which I will OC to the max.

Okay, how about this stuff:
Thermaltake Tsunami Atx Case VA3000BWA
Sony Internal 16X DVD+/-RW Model DW-D22A-B2
SAMSUNG 120GB 7200RPM IDE Hard Drive, Model SP1203N
four Kingston 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-2100
Am I forgetting anything?
