HAHAHA!!!! Your computer pile looks like mine! same gateways and all......are you shopping at your local schools dumpster too! :shock:.  Since you have towers and not rack mount cases you may want to rethink how you want to proceed with your project.

An ok RM case is about $50 + so at $150 + it'll cost you more to to buy cases then build the rack.  Course if your not on a budget go for it and swap 'em over.

The Rack im building has about 42 u of actual rack space, and will have a 22" - 28" empty space at the bottom to accommodate towers.

You can get rack brackets in sises ranging from 8U up,  so you can build a rack of almost any size, or custom build outa angle iron / steel / aluminum ......if you have the equip.

I actually have another project going on that is a Touch screen jute box, using rack mount equip.....but funds are holding me back.....LAME.

You don't need the geforce for a server (unless you have a head on it for some reason), it will just eat power and produce heat. Get hold of something like a PCI S3 card or use integrated graphics.

High-performance computing (HPC) clustering

High-performance computing (HPC) cluster technology is used in supercomputers (multiple computers working in parallel and acting as one computer to achieve very high calculating power). Unlike failover-clusters, HPC-clusters do not require shared disk as it only does calculations and does not need to read or write to a common storage. If one of the machines in a HPC-cluster fails, then all that happens is that the cluster as a whole can not calculate as fast but none of the functionality is lost. Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 (CCS) is a such cluster technology software, announced in June 2006 by Microsoft,[2]

i just dont know anymore

sorry for the delayed response.......fishing trip!  GL with the cluster, Ive never had a need for one,  though i have done some distributed computing before for dev classes.  Post some stuff it you get it up and running.

those pictures give me nightmares.

I had a summer job of basically ripping out all of the cables in a rack and replacing them all, and organizing them all.... it was such a pain... especaily when all they had was like EIGHT FOOT PATCH CABLES, that was annoying

Your nightmares are my wet dreams ;)
