Finally , I´m going to buy a hardware specially for password cracking? focus
in a big one. John will be the player. Center on FreeBSD MD5 [32/32]

So Which hardware/trademark would the best one?,  Proliant Server?  SGI ?
Alpha ones?  please i need some links about it

you should buy the fastest cpu and max memory you can afford
        - not based on "name brand" products

get a sgi challenge T10000 if you  can get one :-)

whether opteron or xeon will run faster for passwd cracking is another
issue

which motherboard you pic does make a difference due to which chipset
is used on the motherboard ..
        intel based chipset is better
        serverworks chipset used to be better for the p3/p4 days
