might be an idea. btw, i have a 230w (i think that's the right unit)
power supply. the box has two hd's (13g, 75g), a cdrw, network card,
a video card (that might go soon) and an internal modem. how do i judge
when i'm going to surpass the ratings of the power supply?
also, i bought the cdrw in part to do backups. the downside is that i
have more then 630m to backup. for under £500, what are some decent pc
backup options that can handle several gigs? also, rather then getting
a scsi card for the pc, what about using a sparc ipc as a backup server -
is it fast enough?

btw, i completely agree on this. the only issue is that scsi disks on
peecee's seem out of place. if i upgrade to scsi i'd want to upgrade
the cpu to ppc, sparc or alpha.
