I recently priced a 4-socket opteron box with 128G of ram at ~$25K. I ended up buying the 2-socket boxs which are limited to 'only' 64G these aren't the $2-3k 1u pizzabox machines that companies like to buy in large numbers for clusters, but if you have apps that don't cluster well (or have per-machine licensing) they can still be a _very_ good deal.
