Is this really true?  Are SCSI disks louder?  I've never really a/b'd
two, but the difference has never been obvious to me.  Fan noise is your
biggest problem, IMO, and you can spend a bit more to get quiet fans.
Frankly, I can't remember the last time I used a mic, and I really don't
notice the sound of my G4 while I'm mixing, but I don't have a true
"studio" environment.
