|Wow Gavin, excellent answer!!|
I would like to expand the memory capabilities, but I do not know if the "raptors" are friendly with other types of drives?
Here is what I have to work with as far as ideas and current resources.
My Dell box has the following card in it:::: 4E361 System Integration, Card, Adapter, S, 29160N, PC Interface
I believe this is a drive controller??
I have a small batch of hard drives I can use in this or any of our new/used computers. However I do not know what kind of drives I may use in the same system.
I have "added a hard drive" to other systems I have had without a problem ever, but I am a bit shy to attempt the same kind of addition to a system like this.
I also have an external 250GB drive that I now use for making a duplicate of my complete system in case it crashes.
I do have 5-18GB Seagate Cheetahs (st118202lc) & 1- 9GB Cheetah (st102fc) that I bought in a lot auction a few months ago. Also included were a bunch (15) of other hard drives ATA/IDE types, ranging from 10-300GB in size. They have all been wiped and tested.
I would like to run a mirrored system, just in case I lose something, and would not be opposed to setting up a system that would do this in link with what the Precision 370 now has, even if I need to get a bit of additional material.
I have a nice laptop which I use for work and my in-the-field picture transfers, but I want to use this as the base for all of the home work.
We have 12MB/Sec cable internet service here and I would like to take advantage of it as well.
Thank You again for the assistance.
