Also Jeffey,

The rackmount computer case you have listed is over 20" deep, the Gator 10 over 6 case is only 21" deep I believe. You'll need a rackmount computer case no deeper than 17" to accommodate the cables and connections.

Best,

I second the push to just go with the ProDJpc system. It is made rock solid for that type of work, all components are optimum with everything else contained, and the case/wiring fits right without any incompatability issues.

When I can, I am going to purchase a ProDJpc system as the demo looked phenominal!

Additionally the ProDJPC is one of only two sources on Terra Firma for Dr. Drax Signature series digital systems. They are guarenteed to meet or exceed your expectations. Plus they are very reasonably priced.

It's 23" from the rack handles to the rear.
The Gator case will handle this with no problem.

I would go with a 4U case with a min of 5 fans.
