My old 24 TB server died, I had way too many things wrong with it and I just got rid of my last 750GB drive. It's time to start fresh (Somewhat)

I will be reusing my case, power supply, and some 2TB drives, but below is what I am looking to purchase.

I will be using Server 2012 with one or two virtual linux machines.

What do you think of the combo?

1 G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10D-16GBXL

I would get a Vishera CPU, like the 8320.

Are you going to use a bare-metal hypervisor or will you run the VMs within Server 2k12?

I've been looking at that CPU wasn't sure if the additional cost is worth it.

I'll be running the VMs inside Server 2K12, I have had some compatibility issues with my raid cards and XEN.

For what it's worth I just put these into my server this weekend:

Gigabyte GA-F2A75M-D3H
HyperX Blu 8GB DDR3-1600 CL3
AMD A8-5600K Black 3.6GHz 4MB Cache

Parts came to about $200 since the board was a refurbished. I'm running 10 drives with a total of 20tb.
