indeed, for a 16-way (switch, cards, cables), Quadrics would be around $ 1,500, for an 8-way about $1,300 (again all hardware included).

If you are bottlenecked at the network, consider e.g. Myrinet, SCI,
infiniband.  Most of the high end networks will cost order of $1000-1500
per node (IIRC) which works out just about right on the get 10 nodes
with the high end networks instead of 16 without.
