  Hi all

  I beg to take advantage of your experience although the topic isn't 
completly cluster thing. I got some money to buy a new machine, at least 
8Gb and I'm thinking between a 2 x dual core or a 1 x quad (or even 2x 
quads). It must be one machine because it must (urgh) be able to use it's 
8Gb in serial codes (don't ask). Anyway, I've been experiencing with 
paraview for parallel visualization and was wondering on your opinion 
on... buying a ultra-duper-cool state-of-the-art graphic card (Nvidia) or 
2 graphic cards?

  thanks for your time,

  Ricardo Reis
