We're buying a four way PE6650, partly because of the excellent support 
on this mailing list.  I thought it might be prudent to solicit comments 
from the list about our proposed configuration:

PowerEdge 6650
4 x 1.5 GHz/1MB cache Xeon
8 GB RAM
PERC3DC w/ 2 internal channels
3 x 146 GB 10K RPM Ultra 320 SCSI Hard Drive
    Set up as RAID 1 w/ one hot spare.
PERC3DC w/ 2 external channels (to connect to a PowerVault 220S)
Red Hat Linux 2.1 Advanced Server

PowerVault 220S
7 x 146 GB 10K RPM Ultra 320 SCSI Hard Drive
    Set up as RAID 5 with one hot spare

It's mainly for MySQL and multi-threaded applications that use MySQL.  
Does this make sense?

Thanks,
Rob
