Dear Ross and AMBER users,

We are going to buy the following DELL system to our group to run AMBER
9: Dell Precision Workstation 490n MiniTower, running in Red
Hat Enterprise Linux WS v4. It has two Quad Core Intel Xeon Processor
E5335 (2 GHz, 2X4MB L2, 1333). It is going to have 8 GB of RAM in it.

I was wondering if any of you had any experience on running AMBER in this
kind or similar system; particularly the efficiency of running sander.MPI.
Is 8 GB of RAM enough, or can we get better speed by increasing the RAM to
16 GB? Any ideas/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
