    Well, 58+lbs later the box was sent out to PRS himself...well, not really. It went to the guy selling the Native Tools setup. Anyhue, the thing is a beast...

    Asus A7M266-D W/(2) AMD MP2000+(1.67Ghz)
    1GB DDR PC2100 ECC(ECC is an absolute must for DUAL Processor systems by the way!)
    Enermax 550Watt PSU
    (2)Zalman Heatsink and Fan
    Maxtor 20GB OS and Application drive.
    Adaptec 2930U SCSI Card
    Western Digital 120GB JB IDE in a StorCase removable bay.
    36GB Seagate 10,000RPM Cheetah SCSI drive in a StorCase Removable bay!
    Plextor 24x CDR/W
    Floppy drive
    Windows XP Pro

    Smoking fast.....I didn't get much time to test it tho...I had some "difficulties" obtaining certain pieces...
    For instance...the best one yet!
    Epoch sales down in Santa Ana, they rep for StorCase. I call Thursday morning, 10am here, and place the order for both drive bays...I specifically requested and asked to make sure it arrived the next day. Not a hard request since they are like an hour and a half away! Well, Friday rolls along and I don't have them. Ok, not open on Saturdays so I'll have to wait till monday...Monday comes along and I get sent out to the record plant to drop off some apogee gear(the AD and DA 16)..so I don't get out of there till 7:30pm...went to work..nothing....ouch. I didn't have her number with me so I couldn't call her.
    So Tuesday rolls about and I call up. Speak to the sales person...it seems this sales person "forgot" to put the order through. .............................................................laung pause of silence..............
    I'm sure you guys could imagine what my thoughts were at that present moment. PISSED OFF :p
