Nice. :) What made you spend the extra dough for the DH800 vs. the PC-DL?

Oh, it's a completely different class of board! :) The DH800 has a pair of PCI-X slots which the PC-DL doesn't and it supports 800MHz FSB Xeons, which the PC-DL can only dream of. While I only 64bit/66MHz PCI, it's nice to have the PCI-X. The 800MHz FSB is just such an excellent opportunity - Ok I'm too chicken sh!t to do the processor socket mod or the pin mod, but for some people it's easy enough... (see this over at 2CPU.com forums ;) )
