Is it? In that case, shouldn't the SI show up there too?
Do you have a PCI carrier? Cause I don't...

1GB is certainly enough, and the only disadvantage with only 1.2 Xbow is
that I can't do VPro and such niftyness. I don't even know if I can do

Incase you'd ever sell these systems, be sure to include the correct
frontskin. I suspect there are far too many out there mislabeled, just
