Have a look at the Fluent.com benchmarks page for some hints.

Hi,

The size and specification of the cluster you need depends on the simulations you want to run. Some simulations can be done quite well on a single low-end workstation, for some simulations even the world's biggest, fastest computer is inadequate. I suspect your simulation is somewhere in between.

A cheap powerfull cluster can be built from Intels Core 2 Quad Q6600 and Q6400 processors (January / February 2007).

If using Core 2 CPUs, it is not necessary to build a cluster. A workstation with dual CPU slots should be one option. For example, DELL precision 490/690 with two Core 2 Duo or Quad Processors can have 4 to 8 CPU cores and up to 64 GB RAM.

For clusters, individual machines with P4 CPU will be the cheapest and most versatile.
