Ok. I was leaning towards 1.6 any way, this is enough to push me the last

I don't think it's quite fair to compare a PeaSea to a Real Computer, but
alas, I have lots of them. Hopefully I can find a few decent 10bT cards,
it sounds like they might be a bottleneck
In any case, if the line is better than 128/128 I'd be pretty suprised. It
was *quite* cheap, and I didn't notice and adcopy with the speed in BIG
BOLD LETTERS. It sounds like I should be good to go with it.
Thanks for everyone's responses!
