Alexander, 
 
G4 Macs have been rated at 1.4M keys/sec or better.
Throw in an Orange PC k6-2/3 card and you could easily clear 2.1M keys/sec.
 
Btw, totalimpact.com claims to be running 128 G4's -- I'm not sure if
they're competing in RC5 or CSC, but they did benchmark it using RC5
illustrating cpu-intensive throughput.  96 G3/G4's on RC5 hit around
24M keys/s.

But, RC5 is not the end-all benchmark for computing purchases.
