    In case anyone was wondering, the sticks I posted for sale for $15 in my F/S thread (link in my sig) are indeed the same ones here for $10. They're still available for $10 if any folder/cruncher wants them.

    Gotcha, but hey man even one rig that crunches will really help us out bro, one rig won't do much damage to the utility bill I would say. I know it's more expensive in places, but my i7 and my AMD quad with a GX2 folding only added about $20 a month, roughly of course.

    and even in germany, where everything is more expensive, then in america, i only have to pay 40 euro more each month, to keep up a 955, a q9550, an x2 3800+ 939, and sometimes, an x2 5000+ (from the 200 euro i have each month,it may be much, but i should be at least half a thousand watts, im drawing 24/7/365, so hey! i use more watts than most people growing ganja in their basements:D and im helping humans directly with it, not only indirectly, and not only some ;))

    still got the board

    i also have a swiftech apogee gt, its not pretty, but its yours for the shipping, it needs some nuts for the mounting bolts, and a backplate(i have an ordinary 775 backplate) but not sure it will work (shipping around 10$)

    i also have a dualcore 2140 that could be anyones for the shipping (8$)

    well the dually i can give aways for free, if it does some crunching then i dont mind, i dont even think its 8$ more like 5, that wont be too much to cover

    but i do want the shipping covered on the block, as its a bit heave, the cpu can be in a buble envelope without any problems

    gonna test it out tomorrow to make sure it works good

    PM me with your details and ill have it shipped by the end of this week :toast:

    Thanks don. I will be sure to put it to good use. I just hope i don't have to come back and ask for a PSU. It's the ONLY part that hasn't been replaced yet(replaced mobo,ram,hdd,odd,cpu,hsf)

    it's kinda funny my dad bought a cheap E-machines for $200 and ended up spending more then he planed on (over time) having to buy replacement parts. but atleast now(well after get the CPU) it will be a decent rig.

    omg :laugh: i really hate OEM machines (no offense) and i hate hearing the salesmen trying to sell them to unknowing mothers and fathers that wanna give their kids a "gamer" and end up with crap :shadedshu

    just to be sure, you do know its "only" a 1.6ghz right? http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?spec=sla3j

    the motherboard can overclock decently(i picked the replacement board :p) i'm sure that even at stock it would do better then the Celly D @4ghz would do. But i think if i can get 2.5ghz or so out of it everything should be fine.

    well the smaller dualcores i had were pretty decent overclockers compared to their stock speed, almost twice the stock speed :eek:

    if you can do 3 ghz then it should be pretty decent for another year or so :)

    what board does he have in it?

    I don't remember for sure. It's some MSI board with a Nforce (6xx) chipset. i know it clocks decently but has limited voltage options. that is why i said ~2.5ghz :)
    I had a E1500 and i got it clocked up to 3ghz 24/7 stable and IRRC 3.6ghz for some benchmarks on a P35 board paired up with some Geil ram that had Micro D9's. That was a fun chip to play with but i only had it for a few weeks then sold it.

    Anyone have a spare Phenom II around? I need one to compete this rig so I can start a second one using my ASRock mobo. :rockout:

    I'll also need some DDR2 ram if anyone has any. I already have a case and PSU figured out.
