    I got my E8200 today from a trade. What do you guys think about this board? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157174 I have 3GB of kingston DDR3 1800 sitting here waiting to be used. It will have a mild overclock on it so I dont think I need to go P45 on the chipset. I can get one used for $55 shipped. Should I snag it, or wait for something else?

    Sounds good, that and a decent HSF (Xiggy 1283) should do some decent clocks. Remember to point a fan at the voltage regulators though

    Its on the way. :toast: I traded my Xiggy 1283 but Im going to pickup another Corsair H50 for it.
    edit:
    The guy I was going to buy the ASRock from changed his mind about the price after we agreed on it. :mad: He now says it was $55 + $10 s/h. So I told him to take it and put it where the sun dont shine (not anyone here @ TPU). :banghead: So I am still looking for a 775 motherboard.

    I am looking for some GPUs SLI setup for crunching I tried the buy|sell forums but nothing is popping up if you guys see some good deals tell me. I honestly need 2 SLI sets I just built a Duel CPU (i7 960) (I use it for a file server but I figured I would crunch in the background) and my personal desktop is crunching also. If you guys find a good deal just inform me I will probably buy if I can afford it. I tried to buy TheDubs 2x zodiac 250 but I was 2 minutes to late.

    Someone hooked me up with a drive. but I'm in need of another here in a few days, building another crunching rig. This one will be a AMD Althon X2 instead of a carp Intel single core... If you have a SATA drive you don't want/need, I'll take it.

    well with IDE i got plenty of fast 10-160 gig drives but most of my sata are 250+ gig and I couldn't give them away but it would be pretty low price, pretty much the cheapest sata i got are 250gig wd blacks. I am always open for trades tho ^^ but the small IDE's can be yours with just shipping.

    Hmmm. I think a IDE would work, just need to go thru my parts bin. (I know I have IDE cables in there somewhere!)

    I'll take whatever has the most space. As this thing isn't going to be 100% dedicated cruncher. (More like 80% most of the time.)

    I need whatever harddrives I can get really, the larger the capacity, the better.(I have to build on a budget because I have to move this month.:()

    I have tons of IDE ribbons and floppy drives/floppy ribbons if anyone needs any.

    Guys, if Radical ed doesn't take it I'll have a 80GB Western Digital HDD up for grabs for crunchers. Shipping is on me as well as long as it's inside the US.

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    Guys, I'm trying to locate a cheap s775 quad, like a Q6600 for a "budget cruncher". Anyone?

    Guys, take a look at the list. Anything that needs to be updated please let me know.

    Also, radical ed took the HDD so It's not longer available. I'll be sending it out shortly to him.
