  There is currently not "too wide" choice of possible sources
of dual Opteron systems now in Russia :-) I agree that high memory
price (for DIMMs from 1 GB, but the price will decrease) lower the
percent of differences in total price, but if you use 512MB DIMMs
for complectation, price difference is essential. Pls sorry: I assume,
that in general the prices here in Russia are similar to other countries,
but I didn't check just now.
