    Can both the slots be used? :D
    Most allow only the use of one...

    Congrats!!!

    I've wanted one for a loooong time... maybe I'll finally get my wish this summer.

    What are the specs?

    From Apple, I ended up with a 2.26 Octo; 1TB; with the ATI graphics (btw, if anybody plays LOTRO, it runs smokin' fast with this setup) and the BOSE companion 3 (WOW these speakers are awesome!)

    From OWC, I got two 300gb Velociraptor drives for a RAID-0 (of which i also partitioned 32gb to use as PS scratch disk), one 80 GB Intel-SSD for boot drive, one 1TB Hitachi Enterprise drive for data backup, and 16GB of RAM,.. all from OWC.

    I installed Vista 32bit via bootcamp on a 80GB partition on the 1TB that shipped with the MAC (for the sole purpose of playing LOTRO).

    I had a blast changing all my drive icons too :)

    :eek: WOW! That's a helluva system you have there. I'm *very* jealous.

    Congratulations! I hope it treats you well!
