That is quite a specific request, and a combination that will cost some real 
money (relatively speaking) - I'd estimate that a max'ed out Ultra 60 would 
run you:

Base, CD, framebuffer, minimal HD    $100
Two 450 Mhz, 4MB CPUs    $400
16 128 Meg DIMMs    $100-150

Do you really have a $600-700 need for a true "Max'ed out" U60?

That's awfully big of you ;^)

I'd suggest a CycleQuad, available off eBay for about$75 after S/H, then get 
a couple Ultra 2 systems (with CPUs and RAM atleast), and combine the parts 
to make a fast system (4x300 MHz, 2 MB cache is a nice machine, of course, 
PCI graphics will either be low-end, or expensive)
