But, I had some money invested in RAM and a decent SCSI RAID0 array ... which off set the two antiquated Xeons quite nicely ...
I was planning on almost the same setup you are talking about (not exactly but the same sorta SCSI....

I still have the dual xeon machine ... my dad uses it for email and what not at his business ... the LVD SCSI drives have long since died and been replaced with plain IDE ...

But man ... was that a machine!

Back in 1999, I was the 7337 audio production suite guy ....

The memory and the RAID0 array really helped ... the disk array more than anything else, really ...

Multi track recording, especially if your using effects/eq/compression, etc. tends to use a lot of on-the-fly temp drive space and so it helps to have a decently fast disk subsystem ...

I was definitly going to implement SCSI Thats why I was thinking XEonn Pci-x slots and onboard controllers and large cache
