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.
