Use it for day to day work and an odd game once in a while.

Built it myself.

Choice of compenents:
- quality
- price performance
- cut corners, but cut selectively and wisely


Basically this system generally outperforms anything, but top range Xeon, Opteron or Powermac G5 systems for the price of high end single CPU system.

Wish I could Ardrid, but it's crunching molecules at the moment, oh....by the way, look at the hostname of that machine...there's a compute-0-0, 0-1, 0-2 and 0-3

Didn't think there was a Tyan board that supported 4 CPUs. Hrmm....*goes researching*

Edit: Looks like the Tyan S4880 is the only one, from what I can tell.
