Hi Pere:

   What computations will your users run on the system?  This 
effectively dictates the design you will need.  MPI intensive 
calculations may need specific types of networks.  Floating point heavy 
or Integer heavy calculations will also factor into your decisions. 
Heavy memory traffic  or extremely low latency random memory access will 
additionally be something you want to consider.

   If you can answer any of these things, please let us know.
