    Why not make a cluster? May improve things a bit.

    Yeah, that's what I'm exactly thinking .... Even 4 nodes cluster would make it good.

    Re:Your PC

    Let me know how it goes. I am thinking of doing one too. I just need more stable work, so I can afford a few more parts. I need replacement PSU's, CPU's, and HDD's before I start, but I can have a 6 node cluster.

    Will do. But the earliest going to be the beginning of next year since I'm in the process of moving. With all that packing and unpacking around Christmas time would leave me no time for my computing stuff.

    If you are interested, shoot me what you be looking for. I have a few PSU's laying around ( some 230 V and some 300V I think ) and a few CPUs ( but all are old, Celeron 333 or something ).
    Yeah, man. I'm really thinking ( for a year or so ) about running web and database server off of cluster. Just never got around doing it.

    Re:Your PC

    Gotta warn you, these are "best as I can remember" prices so maybe a little inaccurate. My current system.

    Chieftec mid tower case $58
    Extra case fans $20
    Allied 350W power supply $35
    ASUS a7n8x Deluxe $150
    AMD XP 2000+ $200
    Thermalright SK6 $46 including fan
    Geforce4 ti 4200 $150
    Total 612 MB ddr ram (256 2100, 256 3300, 128 2700, running at 2100) $80
    Pioneer slot loading DVD drive $50
    Noname DVD+/-RW 4x $100 (guessing, it was a gift.)
    80GB WD "Special Edition" 8MB cache HD $107
    1.44 Floppy $10
    SB Live Value $50
    Logitech Z560's 4.1 speakers $140
    Microsoft "Internet keyboard" $20
    Logitech dual optical mouse (Free with DSL signup -- I couldn't qualify for DSL, but they sent the mouse anyway. Good to me!)
    Sylvania 17" "perfect flat" screen CRT $170

    Let's see, add that all up, and we're at .. $1386
    Obviously I didn't purchase those all at once. Some parts have been on a few generations of my PC's, others were purchased more recently as add-ons, but that's all I'm using at the moment and that's what I remember paying for it.

    Dual AMD 1.2 Palominos (2 1.2s were cheaper than a single 1.6)
    512mb ram
    GeForce 2 card w/ 32mb
    Sony CD-R/RW
    No-name CD-ROM
    2 WD 40gb drives
    Running Fedora Core with tons of updates and 2.6.2 kernel.
    Spent about $700 total for it all.

    My home web/DNS/DHCP server is a IBM PS/1 486sx33 with 24mb ram, runs Debian unstable with the 2.4 kernel. Cost about $2500 when it was new, and that was with a 200mb drive and 4mb ram.
