As you've heard, you can't upgrade a 200 to a 300/400/etc unless you swap 
back planes. There is also a cable that goes between the DSSI bay and the 
motherboard you need to replace. Now a 4000/200 is no slouch compared to a 
MicroVAX II/III, 3300, 3400, 3500, or 3600. Its fast than a 3800 and 3900 
as well but the DSSI drives are faster due to the SII infrastructure.

The other cool thing is that you can put a KA660 in a smaller enclosure if 
you want.
