This config (is that 256GB RAM?) should be fully adequate.

I would not recommend RAID1 on the internal drives though if this is something critical (unless you have a good data backup solution in place). Go for something better like RAID5 (which would require at least one more disk). I hope that is what you are planning for the external chassis as well.
