Ok, I'll see if they carry that at Newegg.
And thanks for the clarification re: DDR vs. DDR2.

Your problem copying large files to your sata drives concerns me
though, as that's exactly what we'll be doing with ours. (*very* large

I'm afraid I missed your post regarding this (just resubscribed to
techtalk), and don't know what you mean by 'Nautilus'.
Could you direct me to the relevant thread in the archives?
