    Thanks!

    X4 955 should be on more starting this weekend, and I'll get the Q6600 going at the nearest opportunity
    Awesome! :respect::rockout::toast:
    Yep, cooler weather here = more crunching/folding :D

    Another i3 and an i7 860, but I'll be taking down a stock i870.

    Shooting to replace a few e6500's with some i3's over the next few months as well.

    Yea my main rig i like to do a fresh install a few times a year, but keeping up with as many as i do.. lol I think i did around 3 installs and reinstalls last week. :rockout: :toast: It keeps me on my toes..lol :toast: And remember Ghost is your friend! :toast:

    EDIT: Just remember it's good practice bro! :toast: You keep adding rigs and you'll have your hands full, but that's why we love it! Just remember if it was easy then everybody would do it! :toast:

    Fortunately most of the rigs aren't mine, so I don't have to deal w/ power usage. But it's also a double-edged sword, it means that they're harder to fix when something goes wrong :(
    Yes, that, and I tinker with things to the point that they don't work, and then have to reinstall :(

    Well compared to having a i7 and the x6, it's slower to me. Next year will be better, you'll see. :)

    I can't wait :)

    My FAH PPD should be up a nice bit by next year, WCG, I'm not so sure about. Not much I can do in that realm without adding another rig, which I'm a bit hesitant to do ATM :eek:

    Aha. That makes sense. Thought you might be replacing an 870 w/ an 860 and I was :confused:
