Well, I don't have the 2850's, but I have a dual amd64 usinmg a Tyan 
Mobo, and it's quite fast, quite safe.  I went and bought a couple of 
refurbished 145G scsi drives, and linked them up on a raid via vinum, 
and it's huge, safe, fast, and reliable.  Being that it's refurbished, 
the reliable part needs some watching for, but so far, so good.
