[Beowulf] Low cost Hi Density - Nehalem clusters

We have been building a development cluster using consumer core i7
processors with 12gb of ram each and a ide cf boot disk on a motherboard
with embedded everything.  This is very cost effective as it uses consumer
processors and the cheapest ram (ram prices skyrocket once you go higher
than 2gb modules).

Does anyone know of any commercial offering that can pack these nodes into a
high density rack or offer a similar price performance curve for the given
ram and processing power?

Thanks
Ralph
