Are thoses specs right? Dual 1.4 g4's getting almost 17k cps? Is this right?
Its almost 3x a 3.2ghz p4. I It would be interesting to see what a dual g5
2ghz would get if a asm core was written for it.

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
