    This kid locally is selling this rig....

    Selling custom built gaming computer. Here are the specs:
    - Thermaltake Armor Case
    - Bluray Drive
    - 2 Intel Xeon E5420
    - SUPERMICRO MBD-X7DAL-E-O ATX Server Motherboard
    - 6 GB of Ram
    - Evga 9500GT Graphic Card
    - 1 TB Western Digital Hard Drive
    - Coolermaster 600W Power Supply
    - Creative Sound Card
    - Windows 7 Installed
    This computer works great and is amazing for CPU intensive tasks since it has two CPU’s. It is also great for gaming. Great for back to school! I am also including 12 computer games. I am looking to get $500 OBO with games or $475 OBO without.

    It's local and how would it be for crunching and F@H?

    I think it would do decent for crunching since it has 2 CPU's in it. The 9500GT on the other hand...

    Id offer $425 with out the games. That is an older CPU and it seems to be LGA 771 so it might not perform as well as a quad core of today's standard.

    EDIT: Then again, im sure an i3 may be able to out perform that machine. You could easily spend that sort of cash on a newer machine and it would output better numbers.

    Great for gaming? Lol not even.
    That Gpu is going to seriously limit you in gaming..
    Crunching maybe..

    I see a lot of antiquated parts.. If I were you.
    I'd save my money and build a better rig..

    Any modern quad core will destroy a dual LGA 771 setup. The FX system looks like a much better deal IMO.
