Default best system for Digi 002

I've read the specks for building your own computer for the 001. I believe the A7V333 mobo has just one firewire connection. The specs for the 002 say plug the 002 and external firewire drives into separate plugs. I'm getting ready to build or buy a computer soon, and was wondering if the specs need to be updated at all for 002.
Thanks,
-jim

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Hey Jim,
That is only if you are going to use external firewire drives. Then you will need to add an additional firewire card. Not many people here using firewire drives yet, but I do believe they are the way to go for backing up our work.

P.S. So I am looking to buy or build within the next month. Should I go with an XP2200 and the other stuff from your list? I am concerned about it being quite also.

It would make sense, but you better ask digi on that one to be sure. Yes, the current system will work great with the digi002.
Good luck,
Allen
