I'm thinking about setting up an in-house BLAST server on a limited
budget and was wondering what kind of performance people are getting
out of Linux machines these days.  I've received some attractive
quotes on 600 MHz Alpha and dual 450 MHz Pentium II systems with 1 GB
of RAM in the $6,000 - $8,000 range.  I'd be interested in hearing
people's experiences with similar systems.

Sincerely,
