I'm seriously considering building myself a "hefty" linux box.
I'd appreciate any comments anyone might have as to possibility of
incompatibilities with Linux (i.e. any unsupported hardware) or
regarding anything else.
Here's what I'm looking at:

        SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black SATA Model SH-S203B - OEM 
        LIAN LI PC-A05B Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

        Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA
3.0Gb/s Hard Drive (I probably don't need anything this big: would
going smaller make it less likely to break?)

        SeaSonic S12 Energy Plus SS-550HT ATX12V / EPS12V 550W Power
Supply (some have advised 650W: necessary?)

        Koutech IO-RCM620 USB 2.0 3.5"/5.25" Card Reader
        mushkin 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 996527

        EVGA 122-CK-NF63-TR LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel
        Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 Conroe 3.0GHz LGA 775 Processor Model
        (The E6750 2.66GHz is an alternative: would it be better to
stay conservative?)

        TRENDnet TV-IP400 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 Advanced Pan &
Tilt Internet Camera Server
Any and all comments would be appreciated.
