ArRrRrr, they be available now. I was actually searching for PCI-X FW, but found SATA instead. I'm personally not a fan of 4 cables coming out of the back. I'm figuring that it would be the same for FW if I wanted each drive to have max available bandwidth, or SCSI and its fat cables that never seemed long enough.

Here be a card:

Ooooh, a 8X drive set up sustains over 500 megs on a read.

What the freak, are you making a pun.

How would I do an external 8 drive setup? Would I need to use the 4 internal slots and pull them through another PCI-X bay, or add another card? Or is there a way to do it with only 4 cables?

not me, them! they said it.

no way to do it with 4 cables that I know of, no daisy chains. but you could pull the cables through, or instead of buying the 8 port card, buy two 4 port external cards. although that limits you to groups of 4 you could do raid 1+0 with hardware striping to 4 disks and software mirroring within OS.

I relize now, if I pull the card cables through, or get 2 cards, then I wouldn't be able to add a ARTVPC. The 6800 stole one of me PCI-X slots

I'll just go with 4 or 2 for now, since 8 drives will put me in the 2k range and I want the last slot free. Worse case scenario, I would need to sell my 6800 and goto ATI, or file away an opening.

I can get a PCI-X 4 port RAID FW 800 card:

http://www.indigita.com/products/ho...4pci.html#Order

This is probably a more expensive route though.

My RAID 133 that had issues in RAID mode was a Sonnets, so I'm a little bit paranoid about getting the above SATA card I posted a link for.

That's okay... I really only have 2.1 I was exaggerating a bit.... 15x300gig with 1 hot swap spare, so 14 x 300 at RAID 1+0

I was thinking about swaping my two internal 250 gigs for 2 500 gigs.

Then again, naaaaa. I'm just going to get 4 external 250s, unless 500s aren't that much more.

but I would have to buy them, and the project leader is pinching pennies... he won't even buy me that dual 6800u. sheeesh.

but he might buy me a PPU to use along side of the GPU and CPU, because he wants to see a PPU.

You mean the dual-GPU 6800 that uses 4 molex connectors?

A PPU would do wonders for dynamics in Maya.
