    I still really want a gtx480 for cheap... it will free up another card for crunching. I am willing to pay for it, but not much more than the 180can I paid for my first one brand new. I need to add more crunching power soon! And I probably would test 2x 480 crunching as well....

    Picked up some new ram so I have a 2x2GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333 kit available for any Team member wanting it :)

    *note- ram is less than a year old but may have an issue- swapped it out but didn't test it.

    Corsair has a lifetime warranty so worst case you can RMA and end up with brand new ram for free :toast:

    PM if interested

    *EDIT- ram's been claimed

    Not sure where the best place to post this is, but I thought I should point out that if anyone has a few PCI-e lanes free, P_O_S_pc is selling a pair of 5770s for a rather good price. At $40 per card (for both), these should give you the best bang for your crunching buck.

    That's $1.24 per XVI's Magical Performance Unit, which easily tops the value list. Not bad for a card that's 19th for overall performance.

    Anyone have an SLI bridge available?

    It's for a pair of EVGA GTX 580's going in an EVGA X58 SLI3 mobo

    Thanks! :toast:

    Decent boards I think- bought the 2nd one from EVGA B Stock for $89 w/1 yr warranty a month or so ago :)

    Not sure which 2 slots (1/2 or 1/3) are better to use???

    I actually have the ones from the EVGA board I bought back in 2009 (first X58 board of many):
    [​IMG]
    I will send you both:)


    Looks like the top slot is the primary and I don't think it matters about the other two...

    The first bridge in the pic is flexible. I like the non-flexible ones as they just look better though:)

    im going to throw my name in here for the first time :D does anyone have a core i5 2500K or 3570K to sell? I was going to buy new, but if someone has one on the team i would be willing to throw my $$$ at them instead of big businesses :p would also consider a 1155 i7 if the price is right.

    I also have 2 way and 3 way SLI bridges that anyone can have for free :D same as the ones HammerOn posted as my board is a EVGA Z77 FTW. I run AMD so these bridges are of no use to me.

    They may still have the special, as they have been running it for quite a while.

    Appreciate the offer, but the ALC wouldn't work out well in the ITX setup I have going.
