64megs of ram seems a bit unlikely.  And when you say two infinite
reality boards, do you mean two infinite reality boardsets, or do you
really mean only two boards (IR takes a minimum of 3 boards to my recall).

I have seen a deskside Onyx in a government department with a single 150MHz
R4400 and 64MB of RAM! They had been using it since the early 90's to
generate the on-screen titles for the national lottery type gameshows and
things. It had all sorts of neat looking cards for generating the proper
broadcast TV genlocks and stuff like that.

I was tempted to make an offer for it, but they paid over 100kUSD for the
system and I didn't want to seem like I was insulting them :-)
