I am going to perchase a workstations for population genetics analysis with the package 
POINTER (run on UNIX). But my boss said this workstation should be able to perform most 
used molecular modeling programs and GCG sequence search with inhouse database in the 
near future. Since I am not familiar in these fields, I'd like to ask what should I buy.

Is the following workstation suited for us?
 SUN Ultra 60 system with dual 450M UltraSPARC-II processor with 4-Mbyte UltraCAche, 
256-Mbyte Memory, Elite 3D M3 Graphics, 9.1Gbute 7200RPM Internal Disk. X7004A Opt 
Memory 256M

How is the suited size of memory and harddisk? How many CPUs are favourable?

Thank you very much
