Subject:      suggestions for computer spec
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1

I need to buy a computer to run SAS on. Would like suggestions as to specifications. I have a budget of probably 5k to 6k. Regular desktop computer.

I am an academic researcher, probably the biggest databases I would be looking at are the in 10 million observation range...

Dual processors? SCSI? How much RAM? RAID? Cooling issues? Backup?

I have some experience building my own, but I am guessing that I will have to go through a vendor that is associated with the university. So please keep that in mind.

I'm going to be pulling the trigger on this ASAP. Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
