I see in the docs that the GXT800P is the *only* gfx option that has a TRAM [or ?] as an optional add-on.
Quote:
The GXT800P offers an optional configuration that accelerates texture mapping in hardware, generating more realistic images at interactive speeds.

Is there a way to tell visually if the texture option is present? I don't have the system up and running yet but have several parts machines with identical hardware, gfx HW anyway. When I had the gfx board out, I didn't see any unused connectors but only the engine boards are present. So, WTF?

After a ton of reading, I got it figured out. I feel like an idiot! Sticker on the PCI back plate reads K-1, well, duh, the adapters doc says right in the table of contents "k-1 & L-1 gxt800P & gxt850P w/ texture".
So, nevermind... :oops:

Visually it has a boat load of RAM sticks inside and a cage I think, right?
