Everything you need to know is here:

I have a 100 that I upgraded with SCSI, RAM and it's still slower than my 
U2 box.  The power supply fan on the 100 is *loud* if you have the 100 
sitting on a desk.  Under the desk it's not nearly as loud.  The case is 
very flimsy, and RAM isn't the cheapest on the planet.  Solaris 10 seems 
to like the blade so far (no problems).

I also recommend you go with an Expert 3d Lite or equivilant card.  The 
onboard ATI just blows.  The Expert 3d is very pretty under solaris - but 
don't expect it to work under XFREE86/X.ORG.
