    I'm going to be running bartspe off a thumbdrive, so I don't think more than 1GB will be used.

    In that case it will be fine, all of my dedicated XP crunchers have either 1GB or 512MB of RAM

    So I could get a 512mb stick instead of a 1GB to cut costs then?

    I would get at least 1GB. While it may run, 512MB is a little on the skinny side.

    i would stick with the 1gb because its already cheap as it is... and some projects may benefit from extra ram. Also keep in mind the lack of L3 so having alittle more ram could (not for sure on this) help makeup for the loss of L3

    I wouldn't, 512mb is borderline tolerable for 1-2 threads, but the extra 2 threads (especially the Autodock projects, ie HFCC, FAAH, etc) will need more memory. If you get all HFCC or FAAH WUs at once you'll be looking at ~400-500mb just for BOINC/WCG

    So I passed on an Atom netbook in favor of a Ultra Portable with a Intel Core Solo SU3500. When I googled it, it looked like it was a single core from my Q9550 underclocked to 1.4 but when I looked at CPUz it says 1.6? Think thats accurate? May crunch on it since it does not get hot at all.

    I estimate ~250-275 PPD @ those speeds. About 1/3 of what my 2.4ghz C2D gets, but still a worthy contribution :toast::toast:

    I got the E1500 today. I'm working on overclocking it. So far it looks like 3ghz isn't going to happen on this board :( but 2.8ghz is looks like it may be fine :)
    [Ion] and Chicken Patty say thanks.

    Good luck, Allendale's tend to OC pretty well (2.8-3.2ghz doesn't seem to be out of reach for most with decent coolers). What board are you trying to OC on?

    seems that alittle over 2.8ghz is about all i can get stable. Using stock cooler on a cheap ECS board with a 630i chipset no voltage options at all..

    I got my X2 240 in the old gigabyte board (Nforce 430) it doesn't seem to want to clock it much at all. Its alittle shy of 3ghz but it still is faster then the 5kBE@3ghz :p

    Well that's pretty good then, I took my Allendale Core 2 Duo E4600 to 3.4ghz but that was on a TT Big Typhoon and an Asus P5K-E P35 with tons of OCing options. That should help boost your PPD by ~700/day, probably about the same boost for the X2 240 :toast::toast:

    i feel with you POS!
    i bought me a gt220 and a 2 GB kit of ddr2 dominators today.
    the card overclocks like shit, but is luckily very cool and very quiet. performance is a little higher,also in folding.
    the dominators error like mad, one stick is DOA.:shadedshu
    no 4gb for a while, on my q9550!:cry:

    I upgraded my 5kBE to the X2 240 today. Got it clocked to 3.6ghz@1.4v(stock is 1.42v) runs 38c under an Xiggy S1283 running Linpack
    http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=887186

    I added another rig today its a E1500@2.8ghz@1.31v runs 53c under the stock LP cooler running Linpack. Both CPUs passed over an hour of linpack and 3dmark 06,Vantage,Wprime,Super PI and just being used. I am going to say there stable till i see one of them return an error

    Awesome, what sort of PPD are you expecting now?
