I want to buy some cheap (about $10,000) workstation
suitable for protein crystallography. I heard some people
started to use Digital Alpha AXP workstations, and according
to the price list some of them are rather cheap.

The question is : What cheapest graphics subsystem can be used
to support such programs like FRODO, or O? 
If you don't know what is cheapest, then, please, just
tell what do you happen to use and what is the speed of 
graphics transformations, comparing to that of known to you Silicon
Graphics computer. 

I'll appreciate any information on this subject.
