I know VAX/Alpha is not in "style" but we replaced our MIS with a VAX/ALPHA workstation with 120+ plus processes, 15,000,000 records in an RDB database with several dozen SAS and fortran processes running and it runs fast and smooth. I believe the box with about 20 gig of storage ran us about $65,000 with all licenses. DEC makes a great machine for the price and if you MUST have NT the Alpha will run it.
