    I'll see what I can do. I should be able to score a 500-600w for a good price, although I'm not sure that it would be the highest quality (and I'm not sure when I'd be able to get it sent out).
    It's a cheap-ass TR-2 unit--I'm not convinced it's good for all that much.

    I might be able to help you out with an HDD if you need it, as it sounds like your spare gave out, too.

    I actually have another spare in my dorm, and I can pick up another one tomorrow. It'll be about $10 or so for another 40GB disk, which is all this setup needs :toast:

    Give me until tomorrow night (so I can see what's available and can buy it), and I can almost certainly get you something :toast:
    A H50 would make a great cooler for my ITX setup :)

    Does anyone have a Display Port cable they are not using? Want to use my integrated video to keep lag to a minimum when the GPU is running but apparently the Z77 can only output 2560x1440 via DP :mad:

    Thanks!

    Will have a nice laptop up for sale soon (my Son's 2 yr old Dell Studio 14.... he wanted a larger screen this year :rolleyes:):

    Model:
    Dell Studio 14 - 1458 (Core i3-370M (2c/4t),3GB ram, Radeon HD 540v 512 MB, 500GB HDD)

    It's in great shape- only used for web browsing and playing DVD's (no gaming/no crunching)

    If anyone is interested drop me a PM- great price for TPU cruncher or folders :)

    I have an Asus 7950 Direct CU II Top that I'll be putting up for sale soon. It includes an unclaimed AMD Never Settle voucher too. It's a triple slot, but it's the quietest thing around and it has a lot of OC potential. Only into the 2nd month of warranty so can sort out RMA's anytime if needed.

    If anyone's interested let me know. I will definitely beat retail prices.

    EDIT: For reference it could do 95-100K PPD with a 3GHz CPU and 12WU


    EDIT: Looks like it won't be up for sale in the end thanks to a tax refund I'm due.

    Shame it has to be triple-slot, I'd love to buy it for the i3 :ohwell:


    Does anyone have any mesh 5.25" bay covers? I was unable to find something locally, so I'm still looking for something to use with my i7-920 so I can mount the radiator better.

    Just thought I should throw it out there... I'm still looking for a 2nd 480 for my main system. It will get some crunching time as well.

    Does anyone have a halfway decent socket 1366 X58 board that they aren't using/are willing to part with?

    I'm planning a potential new rig but am also in need of a spare board for the Xeon system.

    A mATX X58 would be ideal for the rig I'm planning but anything that will work as a spare for the Xeon would be fine. ;)

    Thanks!

    Binge or Sasqui have a store near them and they offer to go there for forum members once in awhile (not sure what area they are from or you are from though). Drop one of them a PM- they may be able to assist or steer you in the right direction ;)

    I may have one here somewhere- it's not compatible with Win8 though. What OS are you using on the rig?
