Hey all, new miner here. I have this great DB server that is no longer being used for DB purposes. I'd love to get some cards and put it to use for mining. Here are the specs, can someone tell me what ATI cards will work with it for the best Mhash/s values? Money is no issue (relatively speaking). Budget for cards is up to $2K total.

Sun X4600-M2 Server Specifications.
Up to eight single-core or dual-core AMD Opteron 800 series processors

Expansion bus
20 GB/sec. of bi-direction I/O, four x8-lane PCI-Express slots, two x4-lane PCI-Express, eight low-profile PCI expansion slots,

I have it populated with 8 CPU cards with dual Opteron procs for a total of 16 cores at 2.4ghz each. It's loaded with 32GB of ECC RAM and dual SAS-10K drives in RAID-1. I was using it for OLTP processing but now it's going to mine some bits.

What cards? Halps!
