I think your gotcha there isn't that the RSP-440 doesn't support the
Trident cards; it's that support for those cards was dropped in 6.x
(yes, 32-bit).

Also, have you seen the RSP880-RL? 440 list price, equal DP rates, and
with better CP performance/64-bit support. Far better lifetime if you're
spending the cash (and yes they do support 32-bit XR, too).

As soon as the RSP880-RL was released, I didn't think about buying
another RSP440. :)
