    This is some motivation for what's to come from me, I've had better days, but not the best days. :p

    A pair of X6s + whatever your 3rd rig would be would certainly be great! :toast:

    That would be cool too, that could be close to 10k from all of your rigs! :rockout: :toast: :respect:

    10k is my eventual goal, seems reasonably reachable

    Me? I'm probably only going to have 1 real rig at any point...the rest will just be various systems spread around places ;)

    And I'll probably have the i7 for a while...probably my b-day at least.

    No I meant me, remember next year I'm building a dedicated cruncher/folder.

    Right....but 10k without that would be hard (at least I think so). What all do you think you'll have?

    Well about five from the i7, 3k from the x6. Pretty close.

    True :eek:

    I think it's amazing that an i7 will still out-crunch an X6.

    I'm tempted to sell the i7 and build an AMD system w/ a pair of hex-core Opterons...IIRC there are some for ~$250/CPU on NE

    I'm undecided as far as CPU for my next build, but folding makes me want to go with a intel chipset.

    How come? What's wrong with AMD/nV chipsets? :eek:

    Anything w/ a bunch of PCIe slots should work fine, no?

    IMO 4 is plenty, that's all that you need for 4 double-slot cards. All that will fit in a standard ATX, even one w/ 8 slots, like the A902 ;)

    :rolleyes:

    I probably wouldn't want to have more than 3 GPUs, with 4 or more it might spontaneously combust. Even 2 is rather warm, 3 will probably be a mess :ohwell:

    No idea :eek:

    Maybe, but I'd rather have 4 GTX260s than 7 9800GTs :p
