Hello Beowulfers

    We are trying to increase our computational resources and we are
interested in a motherboard intel pentium III Xeon (8 processors, 700
MHz - Model DELL poweredge 8450) to expand our beowulf cluster. We plan
buy 2 of this motherboards. However, my boss think that a SGI 3100 (4
processors) could be better choice to run molecular dynamics. We are not
sure about the price-performance rates because we can not test the Xeon
architecture. Does anybody have experience with these architectures to
help us. thanks in advance.
