electric costs may be cheap but older systems aren't exactly energy sippers and if you're running 4 or 5 + at close to 100% 24/7 you'd be surprised how much energy you use.

But yeah grab a coupe more of those workstations and pass the data through a gigabit connection and you'll be going super fast through whatever you're doing.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.
