If anybody happens to have a pair of Opteron 290s gathering dust, please
let me know. I've got my "monster tower of power" built out of
spare/scrap/clearance parts; it's currently got a pair of 280s, a GeForce
9500, and 16G of RAM - the nicest Linux box I've ever had.. 8-)
However, Opteron290 prices on eBay are still silly considering that I
recently bought a Gigabyte motherboard, an AMD Phenom II X2 555BE, and 4G
of RAM for ~$200 - then unlocked the two extra cores on the chip with some
BIOS settings.... (this set of parts was destined for my Wintendo gaming
