Has anyone ever thought of building a computer cluster??

ie: Something like this ? (http://www.calvin.edu/~adams/research/microwulf/photos/)

Or has anyone actually built something similar?

I think this will be my next project sometime. Just to see how good / fast it is.

Just have to figure out, what I would use it for

Yeah! I want one!
I've no use for one either but looks like a fun project!

Yup, it maybe a tad expensive, (depending on how many mobos you put in it), but worth it. Once its up and running.

I'm just starting to get my head around the concept but it looks as though the mobos don't have to be matching. That being the case, I could make a cluster out of redundant parts I have.

Always wanted to, never had anywhere to put one. Would just get a heap of small form factor ex. business lease PCs. Use them for video rendering and such.
