performance: what hardware works best?

I have just installed drcsim1.0 on a machine with Intel® Xeon(R) CPU 5160 @ 3.00GHz × 4, 3.9 GiB memory, 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

I get about 0.95 Real Time Factor at best (it varies) and the window keeps getting dark and then light.

What hardware should I buy (including graphics card/CPU) to run Gazebo most effectively. I think people would be interested in two answers: 1) Something that cost around $3000. 2) A cadillac that cost around $15,000

added graphics card info.

I have just installed drcsim1.0 on a machine with Intel® Xeon(R) CPU 5160 @ 3.00GHz × 4, 3.9 GiB memory, 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04 LTSLTS NVIDIA Corporation NV44 [Quadro NVS 285] (rev a1)

I get about 0.95 Real Time Factor at best (it varies) and the window keeps getting dark and then light.light. Everything else I installed drcsim on got much worse Real Time Factors, but only greyed out and then brighted once (on startup).

What hardware should I buy (including CPU chip model and graphics card/CPU) card/GPU) to run Gazebo most effectively? effectively? How many cores, etc? I think people would be interested in two answers: 1) Something that cost around $3000. 2) A cadillac that cost around $15,000

UPDATE: I changed the graphics card to a NVIDIA Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800 GT] (rev a2) Now I get a 0.97 Real Time Factor and the display has stopped darkening and brightening after the first time.
