yeah, long day and coffee was wearing off, i did mean bus powered. sorry for the slip.

was going to try and borrow a powered firewire drive to try, but looks like the post above beat me to it. glad to know it works! i also thought about just adding in a PCI firewire card if i ever needed it.

power supplies; i use a lot of THESE and love them. lots of stable power, really quiet, 80plus means less power is turned into heat, etc.

of course, pictures of your build will be required, but you probably already knew that. best of luck.
