sounds pretty good so far but your definitely going to need a strong video card - I have a GTX 580(for gaming) but really fantastic for 3ds max as well. if you can afford it a quadro fx is the best solution but only really necessary in production environments.

blue led fans are important, they give you something to look at while rendering

well, keep in mind where the computers going to be used.. If it's in your room (like mine), my blue LEDs piss me off because I can't shut them off whilst I am sleeping..

Be sure to be able to turn them off..

Now that we got some of the more important components out of the way....
