haha well here is the different hardware (as of now) that im gonna be using for it)

the HOPEFULL plan is to
1. put 2-4 gigs of memory on each motherboard
and of course one processor each
2. each mobo will have a netowrk card attached to it, which will in turn connected to a switch
3. there will be a MAIN mobo will 3-5 gigs of ram and a 1 TB 7200RPM hard drive attached to it, the main mobo will also have another network card so it can connect to the outside........ i.e. INTERNET

What exactly are you going to use this for? Supercomputer clusters are really only good for advanced number crunching and simulations. Won't be getting any better gaming performance or anything. And I do hope you will be buying cases for all these separate machines and a power supply for each. Basically you need to build 4 complete computers to do this, but only one will be connected to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

I'm not sure if you'll need to purchase 4 OS's and hard drives, but I think just one in your "main" unit is enough. I've never messed with clusters before, just your standard servers which already have multiple CPU's on one motherboard.

Yea, im using it for simulations, certain cluster projects, and some others. And just for plain old fun and a personal project!!!

Im mkaing a design where htey are stored on a 2-level rack with fans on each side to keep it cool'
with a small bottom level for the main mobo n switch

forgot to add this....
the power units will be on the rack on the same level as their respective mobo
ill also have another kind of switch that will allow me to contorl each node with one keyobard n mouse
