As much as I like SPARC, you will probably get more bang for the buck
going with Opteron's. The Sun U40 is really nice, we have a lot of
them at work (VFX company) and they are both well made and stupid
fast. They can run Solaris 10 perfectly fine if that is what you
prefer ( we run Windows XP x64 on them ).
