    Good deal.

    Well looks like my idle Q8300 is going to a good home.

    If anyone has a hard drive that WORKS and is IDE or SATA for free or uber cheap I really need it. It's all I need for my folding rig. Got a Semperon and a 8800GTS in it right now.
    Size doesn't matter. As long as it hold XP.

    I have a bunch of stuff I'm ready to sell, but don't have pix yet so can't formally post in for sale section. Would it be appropriate for me to post what I have here to what people might be interested in or should I wait until I have pix and post in the for sale section?

    You may go ahead and offer what you have to crunchers. Your word is good here. Your old Xig cooler is in one of my crunchers right now. :)

    I got a performance question for my cruncher. Right now, I have my server which consists of an Opty 165 @2.7GHz, DFI LP nF4 board, and 2GB of ram. How would it compare to that of an E2200, a 775 compatible board, and 2-4GB of ram?

    I lack a board for it.

    Dunno. Have never crunched AMD. Lowest down the food chain I went with Intel was an E4500 and found that all the C2D type chips crunch the same...faster the clock the more they crunch. Cache and so on does not seem to matter a great deal.

    So would a 3ghz E1200 do the same as a 3ghz E8400 then?

    Yep that's what I see. My E4500 @3ghz was the same as the X3320 or Q6600 at 3ghz core for core...obviously the quads produce twice as much. Tighter Timing RAM did make a slight difference in times. Going from RAID5 to Raptor to VelociRaptor to SSD has made no appreciable change in times.

    Too bad the Intel Dual Socket setups are so pricey. There are a number of affordable AMD Quad sockets...but from what I can tell Crunching AMD is like folding ATI...terribly inefficient in comparision to the other options.
