Dear Ruhollah Moussavi B.

For our Numerical Simulations (CFD) and FEM computations, having low
budget, around $20000, I have chosen Beowulf Cluster having 5 nodes
with 2 AMD dual core opteron processors and 4GB of RAM on each node.
Tyan Thunder K8HR or K8SRE motherboards are very good choices for
having 2-CPU/node. As interconnect I opted GiGE (Net-Gear's GiGE
managed Switch with all ports 10/100/1000 Mbps).

Hope this will work in taking start.
