    Yeah im going to need to save as much as i can. And i won't need to pay for any shipping at MC. I'll be picking it up in store. I think i'll start selling my rig as soon as i get home today so i can pick up that i7 950 when im in texas. I'll see if they have any deals on ram while im down there too. If not i could just wait and pick up a used board or that refurbed xfx when i get back.

    Don't count on that XFX to be there when you get back. Geeks.com sells things in batches. When they're gone, they're gone. I AM NOT SUGGESTING THAT YOU BUY IT NOW.

    intel q6600

    corsair xms2 4gb

    Alright, yeah i can't buy it now so i guess i will need to wait around that time. I want a 1366 board that has at least 2 pci express slots. Think i could do it for about $120?

    Alright cool :rockout: Definitely time to start parting the rig once i get back! Anybody want a good cheap folding setup? Board has THREE pci express slots. It would be a great setup for anybody looking to throw some cards in there for some cheap points.

    Let me know if you know of anybody that need's any of these components!

    Eh, I'm not suggesting to buy that board period:shadedshu XFX boards are not known to be reliable (I just trashed a 780i version). That Gigabyte X58 board on my previous is much better. If you're on a very tight budget, go for an Asrock X58Extreme or you might be even lucky to snatch an Extreme3 version for a little over $100 (open box at Newegg for $135).

    Newegg has the X58Extreme vanilla version for $105 open box.

    Can bigadv be run off of Windows, or does it have to be done in Linux (virtualized or otherwise)?

    Maybe take that money and turn one of your K9 systems into a bigadv system? The i7 1366 kind.:eek:
    Thanks Bog. That kind of information is greatly appreciated and needed.

    xbonez, bigadv is now as close as a switch in the SMP client, assuming you have the hardware.

    Alright well i just searched newegg's open box deals and didn't find that vanilla version.

    I found this though. Is this a good deal? I feel like it's pretty good deal.

    You need a x6 amd or a core i7 do to bigadv sorry :(

    As far as im concerned all that does is allow it to get new work units that aren't fully released yet. Im not very sure on this though.

    You should pick up my p7n sli platinum for that c2d and throw in some fermi's! It can handle 3 of them babies and ill cut ya a deal on it :D

    So, I'm starting out my folding rig with 1Gb RAM. It'l have Win7 64bit on it. Will that be enough to fold, assuming Win7 will consume about 70% of the 1GB.

    Right, i plan on folding near enough constantly till the beginning of January, then i might have to stop. That's gives TPU a predicted 10k PPD daily, and 140,000 points at least.

    Sorry, but somethings come up.
