    I was rather fond of the Celeron 440 that was sent to him. Would rather have that also, he is going to send me an IDE hdd. Not turning you down I appreciate it very much.

    I take it no one has any old 775 parts layin around or they can get there hands on. Something in the 915 chipset IIRC. I know nothing of intel and figured I can get some crunchin on it as I learn about the 775 as a starting point into the Intel family.

    I have a old Asus P5RD1-VM Motherboard combo for sale right now. Although I have it slapped together in a case with a 160GB HDD and 450PSU. I was planning on selling it to someone on CL but I'd rather sell it to a fellow cruncher.

    starting to build a dedicated cruncher. Picked up a I7 860 last night(can't complain for $125). I'm talking to chevy350 about a MSI P55-GD65 he has for sale. I still have my PC Power and Cooling 860watt PSU and a Corsair A50, so that will go into the build. I need RAM, HD, CASE, DVD drive, and a cheap GPU(unless someone has something worth folding with).

    Anyone have any of this laying around I can get for cheap?

    Ok, Jr is giving me his P55 board with the broken PCIe pin and 2 gig of RAM, and I'm going to buy a blue-ray drive offered to me for $25 and switch it out with the DVD drive in my 2600k system. So now I only need a hard drive(going to talk to PaulieG about the HD he's selling), case and GPU(thinking about getting that GTX465 from Stinger to use folding). Could probably use more RAM as Jr only has 2gig to offer, that is if more RAM will help with crunching as that is all this computer will be used for.

    Yeah. This project rig will turn out well. If you get that 465 it will still game but you will notice a small hit. If you bench with it, you will notice it more than just using it daily.

    Thought I saw someone selling a 500GB and a 250GB HDD for pretty cheap on the B/S/T threads yesterday ($25 for the smaller one I think)

    Want a Corsair Nova 2 60GB SSD for $50?

    Appreciate it Norton. Hmmm, that is plenty of storage for a cruncher rig. I don't know though. That 250gb drive for $25 would be plenty. Go ahead Jr, think I'm going to wait and see what PaulieG says about the spinpoint drive he's selling(might trade that out for the 500 gb drive I'm using in my 2600k system. I just got a 180gb Vertex2 for my 2600k system, so I'm about to do a reformat/windows install anyway) and see if I can find that $25 250gig drive Norton was talking about and go with one of those.

    I already have a Corsair A50 I'm planning on using.

    I'll take that 80 gb drive if I don't get a deal worked out for either PaulieG's Spinpoint or that 250gb drive for $25 Norton said something about.
    Norton says thanks.
