Any AM2 CPU will do. Even a Sempron can handle 4 cards on one core. I would go dual core and use the other core for SMP(extra 500 PPD). I have been very successful with running all 4 cards off of a Antec EA-500D. It's got 2x 22amp rails and handles the 400 watts the rig draws rather well. It's 80+ efficient, which is a necessity for a 24/7 folding rig. Someone has one for sale on this forum for $60.00 NIB. 1GB of DDR2 800 ram will do fine. You have to run XP because Vista wants to see every card plugged into a monitor. I can see the completed rig coming together for about $500.00 for everything.
