thank you for the good CPU. IIRC i asked you to give me the better of the 2 and it seems that you did
Today sees HammerON and GREASEMONKEY with pie, although Chicken Patty and twilyth are absent:
Thanks to GREASEMONKEY, I've gotten my first couple of slices of pie in months!
Looks good CP, pie is so tasty!
Good Job CP! and thanks GREASEMONKEY! Great job to all the pie eaters!
This is some motivation for what's to come from me, I've had better days, but not the best days.
A pair of X6s + whatever your 3rd rig would be would certainly be great!
I might not upgrade to a X6, I might be getting a i7, we"ll see.
That would be cool too, that could be close to 10k from all of your rigs!
10k is my eventual goal, seems reasonably reachable
10k without next years build.
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.
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?
Anything w/ a bunch of PCIe slots should work fine, no?
Yeah but AMD boards have a max or what, four? SR2 has like what 25,3 slots?
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
Sissy setup :shadedshu
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
Dusty had his with like 7 cards right?
Maybe, but I'd rather have 4 GTX260s than 7 9800GTs
7 looks cooler . What about 7 480's?
