Thanks, Mark.  I see you have 12G.  I'm totally ignorant on the
distribution of memory for the 6 cores if there is such a thing.  Is
it advantageous to have a multiple of 6 when ordering memory? (12, 18,
24)

As far as stability is concerned for a webserver, I don't see it as a
major concern.   I'm sure some of my older machines of the last 15
years were less stable even though they all had ECC, raid, etc.
Please correct me if I am wrong.  My perspective from Mexico, I'm sure
is very different than if I were in the US or Europe, etc.

Thanks,
