    The 64 bit 33MHZ PCI slots on a G4 are running at 133MBps correct? Also I want to know if all 4 of them are running fully inpendent from each other? So if I have a RAID card in there I can get the full 133MBps and will not be robbed of speed if I have a neighboring Firewire 800 or SATA RAID next to it.

    Hmm, I took a look at the links, but I'm still a bit confused. Let me see if I get this right. The max burst for each PCI slot is 133MBps. So all 4 of them would give me 533MBps. But all of this just depends on how much else I have going in thru the system controller and that depends on my crappy 167MHZ bus that translates to 1.3GBps transfer speed for all info for my computer. Am I getting close?
