Heh, I had an SS20 with 4x SM512 (dual SM51 modules) as my main desktop
for a long time. Also had the auxiliary video board, 2x 8MB VSIMMS,
and another framebuffer for a three-headed desktop, though
unfortunately I couldn't do xinerama because of the one wimpy one. It
kicked soooo much ass even so. Even after I stopped using it as a
desktop, it was my fileserver until last year's Great Purge.
In the purge I passed it along to another list member, who I hope is
still using it. If not, i want it back.
