In this paper we summarized our computer building experience. We found the most cost effective processor was a dual P3 with SDRAM. We found that MPI provides the best scalability, but the standard implementation's lack of fault tolerance is problematic. In the future we see using/developing a fault tolerant MPI which allows for dynamic change in the number of nodes used by a given process.
