    Replied- Thanks! :)

    *note- a Radeon 7770 or GTX 650/650Ti and up are currently the preferred cards for gpu folding....

    @Norton pm me some PayPal email or something and let me know how much you need for your preferred GPU/CPU.

    Only just got around to seeing this thread, and I'm already absolutely dumbfounded how generous people are being, and it's barely been a day. A huge applause to everybody around here, truly one of the best and most generous forums around! :toast:

    Hey Norton, you want the rig I'm building? I was planning on running it as a cruncher under my name for a little while, but if you want it for this, it's yours.

    And for those of you that don't know about what I'm building, it consists of -

    CPU- Amd 1055t (received from a trade with @ThE_MaD_ShOt )
    Heat Sink- Scythe Mugen4 (not sure exactly who this is from, @Norton secured it for me for the build)
    MB- AsRock 870 Extreme 3(received from a trade with @ThE_MaD_ShOt )
    RAM- tbd
    GPU- ASUS Direct CU HD7770 (donated to me by @mjkmike )
    PSU- Corsair CX500 (donated by @Norton )
    HD- 250gb WD Blue donated by @t_ski
    Software- Win 7 Pro 64 bit (provided by @brandonwh64 )
    Case- Thermaltake Urban T21(not sure exactly who this is from, @Norton secured it for me for the build)

    edited to show who donated what for this build

    With @ST.o.CH donating a custom aluminum case from the EU and @BarbaricSoul donating a nearly complete rig in the USA it looks like we can build 2 tribute rigs and donate one to each area (USA and EU/UK)

    Are there any objections to this?

    As an additional note, @Norton has just mentioned that all parts in the original OP are for the EU rig, thanks to @BarbaricSoul . Let me know if you're a cruncher in the EU and happy to accept the rig for your WCG fleet. Also let me know if you'd like to donate any parts but need help with shipping

    I've been doing a lot of folding for cancer and HIV. Especially because these two are the most evil diseases and because a lot of people that i know had cancer. I'm not doing it 24/7, but i've been doing it for several months, some of it even on GPU and 8 threads for a massive compute power. I often fire up Rosetta@home/CommunityGrid and run it for month or two. Small, bu contribution non the less.

    I'd love to start my crunching "career" for such a great cause, but alas I'm a bit restricted at the moment, which prevents me from crunching enough for the sheer worth of the cause. But if there's something else I can do or something I can donate that can help out in memory of this TPU community advocate, please tell me :toast:
