Thay actually have PCI card based "drives" that use up to 4x 1GB sticks of DDR400 RAM. I think there was limitations other than hardware on what it could do though. That would be expensive now, considering that almost everybody is running short on DDR chips, and DDR memory is sky high. But it might be fun to play with...
But, back OT, my dream rig would be the one I have now, but with the side panels done so I could quit digging in there and playing with stuff. I'd just like to call it done, finally.

I've booted this mama at 2.9GHz after I took off the IHS, but it sure didn't like it. Right now, I'm feeling out this replacement RAM to see what it's worth. Not much, I'm afraid, but it does run a lot more solid that my old DDR600 sticks. But, there isn't one part in this computer that hasn't been warranty violated and modded my my fat little fingers... except for the RAM
My old sig didn't match the new board. Therefore, you get to read this text sig.
