I have successfully flashed a few PCI 7000 by Sapphire into XVR-100's,
but the last one I bought had the smaller flash firmware, so I was unable to
flash that one.

But it is possible and the cards work perfectly, a bit slow but still better
then the onboard on for example a Blade 100.

Also a question, does anyone have 2 or 4 336 MHz/4MB cpu's for Exx00 to
sell? I have a E3000 that has two 336 and four 248's and it's not fun when
all cpu's are running at 248 MHz.
