    Insane deal, or am I missing something??

    Galaxy GTX 460 for $99 after rebate:
    http://www.frys.com/product/6434002

    And from what I'm reading, Galaxy is pretty good with rebates.

    From what I've gathered, video RAM doesn't really matter for folding, so 768MB should be adequate.

    IIRC, nasty is using one of those. Have to wonder if the upcoming GTX560 is going to cause the GTX460 prices to fall.

    I have all the parts for my dedicated folding rig now except for a cooler for the processor (TexBill will ship it later this week). So, until then, this is what I ahve:

    An AMD Phenom II stock HSF
    Arctic Cooler Pro 7 (except that I'm missing one of the white, plastic things that go behind the motherbaord).

    Can either of these be used as a stop-gap arrangement?

    Would the AMD HSF work if I have a bracket for the 775?

    A friend of mine has a Core i7. he has the stock HSF for that lying unused. If I borrow it from him, would that work on my socket 775 processor?

    EDIT:
    I'm also fairly certain I have a 775 bracket lying around that I got with my H50.

    The i7 has two different sizes. both of which i think are slightly larger than the 775. U may need to drill 2-3 new holes in that plastic piece if u want to try to use it.

    Wouldn't want to do that (plus I don't have a drill), but at the same time I don't want to wait for the cooler to arrive!
