    Thank you, that would be perfect- I was going to take the low speed you sent me out of my Fantom, but it feeds my 275 cool air for folding :) Just drop me a PM if you find it.

    Okay ~ so I ordered a 4670 off of Ebay from a seller that appeared to be okay. However after waiting 3 freaking weeks for the card to arrive, still haven't got it:shadedshu

    So I am in need of a gpu to get my E8500 up and running again. I am not looking for a hand-out, but something cheap will work.
    Anyone??????????????

    Nope! No answer. I have been buying stuff off of Ebay for about 6 years with no problems, but I was always leary.

    I think I have an ATi Rage PCI (it even does 1280x1024@60hz :eek:)
    If I can find it and it still works, it's yours, I'll even cover shipping. I'll look this afternoon/evening and get back to you via a post here or PM :toast:

    I need basically any board that has a PCI-E X16 slot(1 or more.) and a CPU to go with it for dirt cheap. If the board has more then 1 PCI-E x16 slot then that is just a better chance for more cards folding.
    the setup will be used for crunching and folding 24/7

    i wont get a vga so early, the folders set every bit that folds for themselves, and there are other crunching buddies, that would like to get a vga themselves, because they need one.
    the crunchers seem to be understocked in Vga cards...i even had to buy a 9500gt for 70euro locally, because the e5200 had to run!!;)

    i would even fold on it, i have to pay the bill now either :D
    both my vga´s run for pospc atm, to make him a more severe folder;)

    What CPUs are you interested in? I have an abused Pentium 4 HT ES 3.6 (maybe 3.4) GHZ (OEM) and a Celeron 430 (1.8ghz Conroe-L). If I can find either of them and either works, I'll gladly send one of them to you free of charge.

    That Celeron would be a fun OCer, and less of a heat factory than that P4 :D

    i can use the heat :laugh:.Wouldn't the P4 crunch alittle better considering it can crunch 2 task at once? Also do you think 4ghz would be possible on a Thermaltake V1

    Yep. I'm not sure either of them work though, I found the 430 inside a computer not attached to anything (the HSF was also just "floating" around). I'll keep you posted :eek:

    I don't think P4 era HT was very efficient, I think the Conroe @ 2.8-3.0 (est max OC) would be a better solution. I skipped the P4 era for the most part though, so I could be wrong.

    The P4 should be better, I had it running at 4.4ghz @ 1.52v on a HDT-S1283, it ran at about 57C load and did ~500 PPD (but the computer put off a ton of heat). The Celeron should be good for 2.4ghz, or about 300PPD. BTW the Celeron is rated for 35W, the P4 for 96W :eek::eek:

    i am running 2 P4s right now (one with HT) and they seem to be ok. I'm not sure how many points the one with HT is putting out as i don't monitor the results vary much

    My E2200 (which is pretty much the Celeron with double L2Cache) @ 2.2ghz put out a 28 day average of 434ppd. Depending on how the OC goes I think it can produce better than that.

    If you can get some cash together I could see about cutting you a Cruncher deal on a real C2D :p
