Of course all that being said, it probably wouldn't hurt to try;)

On a similar line of thought, What used to set apart the FF800 was some of
the features on it, that are slowly becoming much more commonplace on lower

than it was then.  Maybe not likely, but possible.  It really depends on
exactly what they consider so important about their driver.
