Assuming you mean, running VirtualRPC, a 3.4Ghz PC does not outperform an Iyonix. I have basic P4, 3.4Ghz machine (512K), 800Mhz FSB DDR RAM and a fast NVidia graphics card, built for a few hundred. Tests of raw emulated CPU show it's about 455Mhz effective speed. Disc IO is ludicrously fast, of course. So maybe one of the "Extreme Edition" 3.8Ghz P4's with 2MB cache would get us toward Iyonix speed at a guess. It's bloody noisy though!
