This is the WRONG list to post advertisements for hardware.
and another thing- adding memory will not speed up the client.

Not quite... No one machine is more important that the other.
To quote from the Bovine web page:

" It is important to note that this is not about one team versus another,
or about who actually cracks the  
 key. This is an effort to demonstrate to the U.S. government that 56-bit
encryption is not sufficient as an 
 international encryption mechanism. If a collection of amateur Internet
enthusiasts can break the encryption (and we will), then limitless
government budgets can certainly do the same in less time."
