Don't have one of these on hand? Does it have to be in the Mac?
No 400GB HD options
I would do all HD and RAM purchases off-line, buy the minimum and then get what you need from NewEgg, or a Mac vendor of your liking. If you are doing the buying this is easy all you need is lead time to ship from the vendor then you and a calendar can figure out how to have all parts show up within the same week, or maybe trickle in the small parts prior to the big parts showing up.
No SCSI options (neither HD nor expansion)
Maybe a solution would be to go with an Apple RAID storage solution, just one off, no need for a rack, but if you want one for protection then visit your local guitar shop they should have the small racks that bands use for their equipment, same size I think that the RAID is 6U just get a 12U box then you can add when you want it, you will need a fibre channel board for the Mac BTW.
And RAM prices are just silly. But then again, thats always been that way
Why does Apple have to wait for a whole new revision for things like this? Ngggghhh... agggraaaavvaaaatttiiing
