    Unfortunately, the board won't POST with the PSU I have (It's a 330w Antec one--so old it has a 20-pin main connector and no PCIe, so I can't give any more updates until I purchase a new PSU [buying a PSU, case, and HDD on Friday]). I'll get a new heatsink of some sorts so I can OC before too long.

    $200 shipped for the P55-UD4P, 875k, and Palit GTS450.

    I'm going to buy a PSU locally, I can get a newer Antec 650w for ~$10-15, which is a pretty good deal IMO. I'll also pick up a case (I don't have any idea what one yet) and a ~500GB HDD...total cost for everything else I need should come to about $60

    the psu is 10-15? where? I might have you get me one one day and I'll give you a lil extra. I can really use a few of them.

    Thats a good deal on all that. Esp knowing the cpu goes for almost that much alone.

    Sorry, I don't think I could do that. They're from a local nonprofit I volunteer at, and supply is extremely limited :eek:
    Thanks guys! Now if only I could get it to POST and have some fun :p

    Looks good Ion :cool: When you get it up and running keep us updated with how far you can get that 875k to run.

    If I can't sell my i5 2400 and P8P67 motherboard, I will likely be rebuilding my secondary cruncher later this month.

    For now it will be stock-ish (probably not much more than 3GHz since I'm using a stock 2600k cooler); once I get something better (perhaps a H80) my goal is upper-3GHz range. My 860 did 3.8 on a H50, so even with this ESpecially hot chip I should still be able to do about the same on a better cooler.

    EDIT:

    I briefly borrowed the PSU out of the family computer (a Corsair VX450) and confirmed that the CPU, mobo, and RAM all appear to work. Still, it will be sitting in its box until Friday when I can buy a HDD, PSU, and case, but here we are!

    Of course, on the ONE day I don't have to work, all my rigs go down at work (or, at the least, the modem and router are out again). Couldn't choose another more convenient day, I guess.

    She's still a virgin when it comes to DC :D

    Will have to get some numbers once I lock in a stable and good OC (shooting for 4.2).
