How much did SolidWorks cost you? I didn't see where anyone had covered this yet.

heh... nice. So what type of memory does your computer need? I rebuild them for people, I might have extra laying around... or maybe a video card or something I could donate, if it would help.

If you come across something, that'd be awesome I've actually been watching eBay for old (read: cheap) P4 desktops that I can put 4GB of memory into. My budget of peanut butter sandwiches etc. doesn't conform to buying another machine though. I inspected my timing belt the other day - I've got some maintenance on my car coming up soon that I'll need to divert funds to :/

I'd need 1GB PC2700 200pin DDR SODIMM (not DDR2)... I've got two sticks of 512 in there now.

I'll see what I can come up with, although I may have dumped the DDR stuff when my old homebrew board died.

I'll check and see what I still have when I go to my storage though, might get lucky.

All I got is a stick of 512 MB PC3200 DDR that I never got to install in a machine (still in sealed package!) So if you could use a third stick until you get bigger stuff, PM me.

I've got a couple AGP cards laying around too, dunno if any would be better for you though.

Too bad I don't have Cosmos... I do SW work all day long and the machine is built for it (2 dual core Xeons @ 2.3 ghz, 4 gb ram, scsi hd, and a Quatro FX 1500), and I'm just a designer. You should see the guy's machine running Ansys (our FEA software), its amazing.

As soon as I get done piddling around with it, my IBM/SETI research machine is a dual Tualatin 1.4 (dual CPU) with 2.5gb ram (it's old... P3 @ 133mhz FSB, Ram is clocked at 133 too) And 2x150gb SCSI, 4x74GB SCSI and a single 20GB IDE hotswap HDD.

It has built in GBe, and that's all I can afford to put together on it for now. I'm not concerned with speed so much as overall useability, since it's a dedicated SETI/IBM cancer research machine... all it's going to do for pretty much all it's life is research and math. (Watching star maps for SETI, doing math calcs for IBM's cancer R&D sector)

ALSO: First glance, I didn't find anything, I have to dig through my electronics pile... all the PS2's and xBox cases and such all got stacked together when I moved awhile back, so it's all a cluster fsck now.
