[filmscanners] Re: Vuescan and 64bit Windows - Ed's reply



This particular Gigabyte has 8 sata ports with two FRAIDs. I figure once
the horsepower of the machine is not enough, it will be at the very
least a good server. I lost count of the USB portsl but I believe it has
12. Also two 1394B (yes, the 800mbps) firewire. Also two lans. Dual
bios, so you can save the old one before you upgrade. This is an amazing
amount of hardware for something shy of $150.

With the Silent PC case, a heat piped graphics card, an on-demand fan in
the PS, the PC is less annoying than many notebook computers in terms of
noise.

I'm using Asus DVD roms, and am only somewhat happy with them. The
drawers are kind of flimsy. The drives are fast, but not as quite as my
Sony DVD burner.

I guess I want a Mac (no fan) with PC performance.
