No limit on PT side.

Quicksilver (original) can support 128GB drives and Mirrored Drive Door can support larger, but even the older G4's can have 48bit LBA support by adding Sonnet Tempo ATA card.

Just on top of my head, please google to verify. It has been a while since I last needed to work on my old MIX3 system.

i once started with the Digi 001 then the HD rig so i do not know how it goes with Mix systems but, if you have lots of tracks to record or to read, just make sure you have them on several IDE HDD because one won't be abble to read or record all tracks
