Today I went to choose cases with the person who wanted me to build him a computer. and he settles with a cooler master 430 black elite case. this means that i can use ATX boards as well.

I've been looking at the sabertooth x58 Mobo as i was looking at durable long lasting Mobo's what do you think about what asua claims as being "military" grade components? in addition should i get this mobo or should i get him a rampage 3 formula?

also what conclusion have we come up with for the storage method? for super reliable back up?

Looks good. Personally I'd swap out the Vertex for a Corsair F Series SSD, but that's just me.

Go with an AMD 1100T and save some monies.

I'm assuming he doesn't want bright LEDs, so get a non-fancy mid-tower case (he could be VERY unhappy if he doesn't like the case!)

Uh, why? If backing up data is very important get a network storage server with the extra money you'll have left over! If that room happens to catch fire everything is lost! If he doesn't want two machines then just do standard HDD's in RAID 1. Or, better yet...Get an external HDD and have him do weekly backups then put it in a fire-safe when not in use!
