(don't forget check driver for your OS)
plus battery backup
plus (optional) expand RAM to Maximum 256MB - approx $1K
2. Buy new MAXTOR drives - Atlas 15K II (4x36.7GB) - approx 4x$400.

4. Old drives (2) use for OS (optional DB log) files in RAID1 mode,
possible over one channel of MegaRAID.
5. New drives (4+) in RAID10 mode for DB
