We are thinking about buying 6 of these & was wondering if anyone had any exp. w/them. We are also considering a similar Intel Extreme Quad QX9650 3.00GHz from XI. (Xeon Quad or Extreme Quad?...haven't got that far)I have read the posts about XI & the ones about the customer service were true. Management prefers HP.

We do alot of large assemblies & everything has hardware. We plan on having these for about 3-5 years so that's why all the horsepower. The ram is too expensive to buy more from them.

Thanks,
Bill
