    I'd guess they go with route 4, keeping OCZ and PCP&C as separate entities, both leaders in their respective industries. My guess is PCP&C is a profitable division of OCZ, so it doesn't hurt to have them in their portfolio.

    The concern with OCZ is always with their books. They flirt with having a good debt load and lots of goodwill on their books, and with massive rebates they end up with pretty slim margins by my understanding. Seagate may be able to increase the volume of OCZ's sales to make their numbers more appealing.

    I'm an OCZ stockholder. I wouldn't mind the acquisition at this point so I'm anxious to see how this rumour pans out.
