If you have these 2 parts -

MEM-SUP720-SP-1GB Catalyst 6500 1GB SP memory for Sup720 and Sup720-3B 2

MEM-MSFC3-1GB 1GB Mem for Sup720, Sup720-3B and MSFC2A 2

any reason why you don't just purchase the Sup720-3BXL which already has 1GB on the RP and SP ?

Not come across this part -

CF-ADAPTER-SP SP Adapter with compact flas for Sup720 2

if you are looking for compact flash cards these are the part numbers i'm aware of -

MEM-C6K-CPTFL128M - Cat6500 Sup720 Compact Flash Mem 128MB

MEM-C6K-CPTFL256M - Cat6500 Sup720 Compact Flash Mem 256MB

MEM-C6K-CPTFL512M - Catalyst 6500 Sup720 Compact Flash Mem 512MB

MEM-C6K-CPTFL1GB - Catalyst 6500 Compact Flash Memory 1GB

where did you find the CF-ADAPTER-SP reference ?

Also don't forget transceivers for the WS-X6724-SFP module, these can add to the cost :-).

WS-X6066-SLB-APC - You may want to consider the ACE module rather than the CSM as the ACE is the next generation version.

Finally regardless of whether you go for the WS-SUP720-3B or 3BXL you should see this link. A SUP720-3B has a PFC3B but you are looking to buy DFC3A cards for the 67xx modules. You may want to consider DFC3B cards -

Hi Jon,

CF-ADAPTER-SP is the internal flash adapter inside the SUP, it converst the CF to DIMM like. I believe this is a generic part number for SUP720.
