Thank you Ron for posting this.

I am also interested in the same question. Also, I would like to know more
precisely what brand and model of motherboard and what brand of CPU do
people have experience with. Does it make sense to purchase for example a
Lenovo D20 workstation and equip it with one or two Tesla C1060 cards?

It would be great to hear other people's experiences and tips.
