I love my job so much...

On top of my shiny new PC I now have at home, they just bought me a new one at work. And it is also shiny. Quad core 2.0GHz Xeon, with space on board for another, NVidia Quadro FX6400 graphics, 2x160Gb SATA hard drives (being upgraded to 3x500Gb for RAID 5). Only 2Gb of DDR2-667 RAM though Bit of a let down at the end :P Going to bring 3dmark in soon to test it out a little And there's another identical one for my co-worker.

So, any ideas of what to do with them? We don't have a project to actually use that power for another few months. And yes, mine will be folding as soon as we get the network set up

That is some nasty folding power.

I do n't think that quadro card will net much in 3d mark. Not made for that.

I develop new ways to monitor, collect and process environmental data. This machine is gonna be running a geographical information system so we can demonstrate sensors etc with gps capability without risking damaging the agency's actual live data. But like I said, that project doesn't start for another few months, so it's going to be used just for software development and checking email 'til then, pretty much.

And I completely forgot to bring 3dmark in to work anyway :P
