Rackmount server setup for DAWs - what to buy?

Hey all,

I've decided to bite the bullet and get serious about making music. Seeing as my day job is network security, I'm super interested in building and optimizing a rack for the express purpose of composing music. That being said, I'm no datacenter engineer; I'm not exactly sure what to prioritize when it comes to choosing the best mobos and expansion cards for the musical equivalent of a battlestation (not to mention cable management and patching).

I'm going to be keeping each DAW on a separate motherboard, but beyond that, I haven't yet figured out my shopping list.

Are you talking along the lines of using a multi-computer Ethernet based network, with say something like Vienna Ensemble Pro? If so, any suitable type computers will network in the way you'd need, so building or buying rack mount computers should be no different. As for your particular required specs, that's another story that you'd have to give more detail on.
