Default Help with first time PC build - video server

I'm looking to build a rack mountable pc to use as a video server for some new IP CCTV cameras I am putting in. This PC won't be browsing the internet or playing games. The only software I plan on having on it is the Video Management Software and some kind of antivirus.

CASE: Haven't picked one yet
PSU: Corsair CX430 V2
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3
CPU: Intel Core i5-2400, 3.10GHz w/ 6MB Cache
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x 4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL7
STORAGE: I was thinking 2x SSD in RAID
OS: Windows 7 Professional

I'm certain my minimum specs have been met. I need help with figuring out what I am missing and if everything would play nicely together.

Quick modification.

RAM: Getting 1866MHz instead of 1600MHz
OS: Ubuntu 10.04 instead of Windows 7 Pro

You won't see any performance diffence by upgrading the memory. You can use DDR3-1333 and save some money.
