Hi William,

Upon further investigation, I think this the way to go, specificaly I'llbe 
recommending the 320-2 as I plan to put the WAL and DB on seperate channels 
and partitions (as opposed to to putting them on the same logical partition 
split over the two channels).

And we need all the help we can get, right? ;-)

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction there.
