I had to import the processor, the DMax HDDs, the HS/cooler and the memory. I'm still waiting for the memory and video card to come and have to buy the case (no Sonata II here in Brazil... can someone help me? )
It appears I picked up the right pieces for the machine. Hopefully it will be powerful, quiet and I will be able to take advantage of all of its potential.
Many thanks to JonFairhurst, Jcschild and all the other people in this forum who helped me
