Default does this sound good?!?

ok well my friends brother is starting another company and wants me and my friend to build him 12 computers. here is what we think we might build him.

Cooler Master TAC - T01 Case
AMD Athlon 3700+ San Deigo w/ venus 12 heatsink
DFI Lanparty UT nF4
eVGA 6800GT
OCZ Platinum Rev 2, 1 gig
OCZ Modstream 520W PSU
2 x 160GB Seagate barracudas in RAID 1
DVD rw and CD rw drives

it comes out to about 1650 each.

does this sound good, he said wants some really good computers. he wants them to look cool, and have parts that we would use on our computers because he likes the ones that we have. this is pretty similiar to my computer except it has a few upgrades that i would have done if i had the extra money.(my friend and i have basically the same computer).


does this sound good? idk if i should have built a opteron based system but idk if that is what hes looking for he just wants real nice computers.

any suggestions?

oh yea and with the money that i make what would you guys suggest buying lol...

Sounds like a great set-up.

But aren't those Venus 12's pretty loud? Would it be easier/quiter to choose a different HSF, or even to replace the fan that comes on them with a quieter model?

I mean, unless these rigs are going to be in an industrial/shop set-up, you don't want them sounding like they are revving up for take off, do you?
