I'm going to be upgrading our domain to Server 2008 next month and I'm starting to plan the hardware needed for the upgrade.  So far, here's what I'm thinking

Motherboard      Tyan   S2932WG2NR
Hard Drive      WD 1500AHFD (5)
RAM      Kingston KVR667D2D4P5K2/4G (4)
Raid Controller      Adaptec 2252400-R

Is this acceptable?  We're a small organization with maybe 75 users tops.  

I'm pretty set on everything except the hard drives...I'm pretty sure I can get away with four drives in a Raid 0+1 because I assume the drives are not accessed much.
