  one thing that I was also curious about:
  By using this PCI card, did that take a lot of load off of your
  processor when you were doing your large file copy tests?

  Right now when I am transferring huge files, my load goes up to ~2.0
  due to the io, and makes my computer almost unusable.

  If the card does reduce the load, would the same thing occur with the
  ISA version of the card?
