    Just so you’re aware of the specs. They can be found on page 3-4 of Beta Node Handbook

    If you’re not going to use a GPU it might get expensive. We expect between now and MainNet nodes without a GPU will require a CPU with at least 40+ threads. In the long run we calculate it will be less expensive to build a GPU node.

    I’m curious about GPU use as well

    Would like to get details regards HW specs!

    I like the location and experience of the applicant. Please provide answers to questions related to HW. And would be good if you could also answer the last four questions.
