Hi Saw,

That is one powerful custom machine you got there.

All the components look good.

The Radeon X850 XT comes with dual DVI outputs for driving a pair of LCD monitors without the analog conversions muddling things up. Most ATI cards lack of a second DVI output - but the X850 XT is an exception. So it's a good choice for your needs.

As for the ADS PYRO 1394DV, it comes with a capture card, which provides 3 FireWire ports to your computer. So again, it is a good choice.

Hope this helps.
