SuperMac C500 603e/180 - the cheapest, lowest-end Mac I was able to
buy a few months ago (ok, I could have bought a close-out 603e/140,
but the price difference was under $100). As far as RC5 goes, it's
definitely faster than your 7600/132, but for most stuff your 7600
would probably be a little faster...

Maybe my original post was a little wrong - my SuperMac takes just
over 3 days to finish 500 (@ 517 kkeys/sec).
