STONITH Device For a Desktop Motherboard?

For a home system that is a 2 node cluster using heartbeat and pacemaker, which would be the best bet for a Shoot The Node In The Head device? A PDU looks rather expensive, and from what I read a Ipmi card won't really work on a desktop motherboard(using Gigabyte AMD).

looked up ipmi, looks like some kind of device to monitor the fans and stuff in a server... you could probably do that with a minimal networked arduino, the proper protocol stack and some connectors. could even get it to trigger shutdown sequences of the server if there's an error.
