Slow Performance on 8500

This 8500 has 3GB memory and 8 550MHz procs and connected to a SAN. We plan to migrate a data warehouse DB on this box with SQL2K. Data uploader tests indicate that we are getting slower performance on this 8500 compared to a Proliant DL380 with 1GB memory. Running SQLStress on both this 8500 and another 8500 (with internal HDD and SmartArray 5302) produces almost the exact same results, e.g., ave writes/sec. We had the same problem when trying to migrate to SQL 7 and we're told to go straight to SQL2K instead. Thanks.
