One of my frontends is an 5 year old tower PC that was trailing
edge hardware 5 years ago. Bought it because it was cheap. It does
fine though because I put a good video card in it (nv430).
I also recently dramatically improved the performance of a similar
machine by putting a nv8400 in it. A good video card can go a long way
and a good video card can be a relic itself.
