    Well here is the latest addition to the team. I'm going to back this overclock down for crunching but it should still produce some good numbers even @3.33GHz.

    I just got mine in the mail as well. Waiting for the UD5 to show up, then I still gotta buy some ram. Gotta wait till after the car gets inspected tho.

    Don't really know how I should break it down tho. It would make a killer -bigadv folder, but then again, my WCG could use a boost as well.

    What I'm guessing will happen is the i7's now have to come down in price a bit at least when i9 is out. Then I can go ahead and build another dedicated cruncher or two :D

    i woulnd rely on that, afaik intel has never lowered their prices very much when some thing new comes on the market? but it might just be me

    i would go for a 6core amd maybe? and a 785g board

    I don't know yet. In the meantime I would really at least like to build a cheap cruncher like a Athlon x4 or something. A little 1.5 PPD extra would come in handy. Just something to get me motivated, it's been a while I don't add anything.

    yup HD4200, its actually pretty good for onboard:D

    + it should be easier and better to overclock with than a 790fx afaik + the chipset is cooler

    Yeah, but my main concern is keeping cost down, if I get onboard video, no need for a graphics card :rockout:

    yeah, the good thing with AMD is the many possibilities and choices you have. I'll look into this in a bit.
