Here is a link about Canada's fastest cluster.  There is a link off of 
the "McKenzie's" home page that explains how they worked out some of 
the latency problems using low cost gig switches.  A complete 
description of hardware is also included.

The graphics of galaxy collisions are interesting as well.
