  After reading some posts here and going to cluster monkey I really got 
seduced by the SDR infiniband idea. So, next cluster extension, thats what 
I'm gonna get. Except...

  Mellanox MHES14-XTC Infinihost III Lx, Single Port 4x Infiniband, PCIe4x

  buy at colfax : 125 USD roughly, now, 98 eur

  ask for Mellanox Portugal (or europe) for a quote and you get <gasp>

  488 EUROS!!!

  sorry to polute the list but I got take this out of my chest...
