    Awesome, Ds are good crunchers, 4ghz shouldn't be hard with a decent HSF. I ran a D 940 for a while @ 4.2ghz, it did approximately 800 PPD, maybe a bit less. The only problem was heat/power consumption, the rig with 1 HDD and integrated gfx running on an 80 plus PSU drew over 200w. The only problem you may encounter is the power required and heat produced, but they are good crunchers if you can get them cheap.

    @stanhemi

    I'm sure my brother in law would appreciate it if you could spare that 2500+ for him. He is on a T-Bird 900mhz right now.

    @DarkEgo

    I see you lurking and I do have a question for you but I will ask at a later date. Probably throw you a PM tomorrow sometime.
