Hmm. Here, in the old world, SGIs are quite cheap. You can get a well
equiped I2 R10k (High)Impact for less than 2kDM (less than 1kUS$) or a
lower end Octane R10k for less than 3kDM (1.5kUS$).
Or get a AlphaStation with a Powerstorm 4D50T or 4D60T. I paid 1kDM for
my PWS 500au with 4D50T. It is no SGI, it is not that cool like a I2
Impact, but deliveres the same graphics performance and has a faster
CPU. And you can get the texture RAM in every ordinary PeeCee shop, as
it is PC100 SDRAM.
