| Thanks David, I'll use this to go and kneecap the rep who's trying to
| sell me the machine.
| Here's a curious point; according to the table of speeds in the link
| you gave me, even a 64-bit PCI slot only has a throughput of 508.6
| Mbps...surely that means it won't run the 800Mbps firecards at full
| tilt either?
Probably not. They probably mean that firewire xxxx has a theoretical
limit of 800mbps, which can be perhaps reached by other architectures... ?
It could just be marketing speak - just like how they sold 56k modems
although you could never hit 56k in the real world due to naff bt wires
