I am building dedicated units to run SETI and was wondering which processor gives the highest RAC/$. Also, is the amount of memory important? My best unit so far is a Q6600 w 512MB, running about 1900 RAC. I paid $277 for the processor, but I see other people getting better results with the less expensive quad Zeons. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Better to take your query to the number crunching forum as that's where the majority of the number chaser are to be found.
