i have the P3V4X and had trouble with DMA on the drives, with DMA off the
load would get to 10-20 when copying large files(P3-800 512MB at the time),
once i started using the promise ata100 controller instead of the via
onboard it worked great though.
p3v4x is a great board otherwise..as for hard drives the only drives i
will pay money for is IBM. quantum, seagate and others i would
use if the drive was free, i wouldn't pay for them though.
