Sounds interesting; I've been thinking of getting a modern (i.e. pretty
fast :) and non-mainstream (i.e. not Intel x86 :) machine to play around
with... I know next to nothing about Alphas though; any place I can find
more info about these? What else will I need to build a system? Video
card? If so, will a standard PCI one for PeeCees work? Hard drive? IDE?
SCSI? Ethernet? etc... :)
