Or how much money you spend to by it? ;-)

Back to topic: 
I ePayed an Octane R12k, 300 MHz, SE GFX, 512 MB RAM, 9 GB disk today 
for 300,-EUR (approx. 300 US$). Seams to be a good deal. 
Can I use the SE GFX together with a SI GFX for a dual head setup?
Or do I need two SE / SSE for dual head? 
How do I get FDDI? It looks like there is no XIO FDDI Option. 
So I need a PCI card cage and a SGI PCI FDDI card. 
Does anybody know if I really need the very special SGI PCI FDDI card, 
or is the SGI PCI FDDI card some generic card that SGI OEMed? 
(SysKonnect, Interphase, ...)
