   It's what you use to build a really BIG Origin 2000 system.  That's  
the same seller I got my O2000 from...Looks like he did part out a 2800  
or something similar.  That means he'll probably have a lot more of  
those single-chassis machines for sale.

   If you can afford it, and if you plan to get a bunch of Origin 2000  
chassis to build a really big honkin' system.
