    Dual channel 3940 Adaptec Card
    2 50 G Barracuda LVD in two bay Power RAID case.
    Can I upgrade to an Atto 160 dual channel card , put the Barracudas on one
    channel and 2 Cheetah 160 73G drives on the other?

    not sure what the 3940 is, but YES.

    The ATTO Dual channel U160 should handle ANY LVD drive well. You may wan to run on Cuda and one Cheetah on each channel and strip accross (for speed and size). You could probably run all 4 drives internally - this can save on cabling. The Gurus will know for sure.

    So long and thanks for all the fish!

    you can, indeed.

    all you need to decide is, where are the Cheetahs going to be installed (internal versus external), and what cables do you need to run from the rear of the ATTO UL3D to the rear of your Power RAID case.

    we're betting that you will need .8mm Champ to 68-pin MicroD.
