Apple packs a 1TB drive into the Mac Pro. I think that we can do much better. The 3TB Western Digital Caviar Green WD30EZRX will do nicely.

Cooling two processors can get noisy, which is why I like to use ultra quiet parts.The Xeon processors don't come with coolers so we need to add a couple.
I've gone for a pair of Noctua NH-U9DX coolers. Not only are these really quiet but they are specially designed for dual Xeon systems and allow better cooling of the two processors.
Price: 2 x $60.
