What's more... how much energie does it consume? I've got plenty of old 
boxes here laying around I could hook up, but most of them are just 386 
and 486 machines. Let's face it... the amount of electricity used vs the 
performance does not justify it :-)

        performance vs (initial cost + operating costs)
