Right. We've been buying Tyan bare-bones boxes like this.
It's better to go with bare-bones than building boxes from bare metal
because the cooling issues are addressed correctly.

Note that if you need a large number of machines, then Intel
Core Duo may give the best overall price/performance because
they're cheaper to run and cool.
