    Does $10 shipped sound ok for an Athlon X2 4200 (ADA4200IAA5CU)?

    I have this motherboard in my for sale thread here

    [FS][US] Watercooling & parts, parts, and more par...

    Now if this motherboard does not sell, I am going to be in need of a CPU and video card and will just put this system together and start crunching with it.

    I am on a very tight budget for the next couple of months, so a cpu and video card as cheap as possible would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well I am thinking that I will just end up building a crunching rig with it. If I can find a cpu and video card really, really cheap:laugh: then I will just go that route.

    If I get my 1155 board today, I'll start putting the 2600k rig together. So I'll have an Asus Crosshair IV Formula + 1090T combo for sale. One member is interested but I've giving him a chance to mull it over, so he gets first dibs until tomorrow. But if not, then I have a couple questions.

    1. Do I put the gear in the regular FS forum? Because the price I would want here is going to be about 15% less than what I would want there.

    2. Do I need to post pix and such as per the FS forum rules? Or can I give links to the gear with full specs?

    That combo sold on ebay for $410 recently. So you can get an idea of what I'd be looking for.

    Thanks for the assistance. I need to defray my costs for the new rig to some extent but I want to give crunchers a good deal too.

    I'll also have a Phenom II X4 940 in a week or 2 with an ECS black edition m/b. Nothing super but it seems pretty solid. I can give more info if there's any interest.

    I understand that, but I'm only offering it to crunchers at a pretty decent discount. I'm not putting in FS at this point if I can find someone here who wants it.

    Thanks Don. :toast:

    I'll wait to see if I have a deal with one person who is interested. If not, then I'll post more info tomorrow.

    Help!:confused:

    When I open BOINC and then open the Prefs, it opens that window on my screen to the side(Monitor2). Even when I disable Monitor 2 it still opens there. I can see a tiny slit of the window on the right side of Mon 1 but i cant grab it or "right-click -> Move" from the taskbar. I have to enable Mon 2 just to close/move the window:mad:. I can't do anything with BOINC until that Prefs window is closed.:banghead:

    Is there a Reg entry or something that will make it open on Mon1?

    I was just wondering cause I never remember seeing you in the WCG or F@H team threads, thats all. When I searched for your username nothing comes up in either DC effort. You should start back up, every bit helps :toast:

    Anything is very welcome :)

    Even a single core, case in point, I have a 1.7ghz Pentium M that was on all of the time so I decided why not crunch? ;)
