I see memory for these systems on Ebay often.  Adding an additional 
512MB should be pretty cheap.  I just spent $300 to get 3GB to bring my 
7044-270 (with the same kind of memory) to 4GB.

Focus Technology usually has pretty good deals.

I forget who it is, but there's also a company dumping POWER GXT6500P 
graphics accelerators for only a couple hundred.  IBM is still selling 
these for $2000+.

BTW, it's not a POWER3, it's a POWER3-II.  The processor is actually 
quite different.

Peace...  Sridhar
