Forensic workstation recommendations

Just a quick note to highlight this thread in the forums where we're trying to put together a list of hardware suggestions/recommendations for anyone considering building or buying a forensic workstation for imaging and analysis.

Do please chime in with any thoughts, not just for the main components (motherboard, chip etc.) but also for the less "sexy" items. Can you recommend a particular case, for example, which you've found has worked well - perhaps due to it's connection possibilities or some ergonomic feature which you particularly liked? What about a particular brand or type of hard drives - are some more reliable than others in your experience?

The focus of the recommendations is on hardware which gets the job done but also represents value for money. Hopefully once complete it will serve as a useful reference for new practitioners entering the field or anyone upgrading from an older system.
