Default Anyone using the Digidesign Expansion|HD chassis?

I'm thinking of getting a Mac Pro Quad and an exansion chassis for my PCI-X cards. I came across the following blurb though, and was wondering if anyone could tell me how bad the latency is in actual practice? I'm not using too many RTAS instruments, but use Amplitube and SVX on a regular basis. If the latency is 256 or below it could be workable for me.


"Systems using the Digidesign Expansion|HD chassis will incur slightly increased RTASฎ real-time monitoring latency compared with systems in which HD cards are installed in the host computer. This monitoring latency will be most noticeable when playing RTAS instrument plug-ins in real time."
