But it would be interesting to know how strong an opponent you can get
for say $50. Assume a slow game, so two hours of CPU, meaning how many
cores/Ghz can you get for $25/hour?

Let's assume the programs scale as well on clusters as they do on SMP


P.S. I chose $50 as I can see people paying that for a teaching game
with a pro. I'm not claiming a game against a computer would be of equal
value; my point is simply people will spend that much on playing a game
of go. And today's $50 is 2012's $10.
