    Okay, this is going to be the specs for the price rig:

    1. m/b - Asus M2NPV-VM (AM2)
    2. cpu - Phenom 9750
    3. ram - 8 gig g.skill DDR2-1000, 5-5-5-15@2-2.1v
    4. video - GT210

    I got a cooler from HammerOn and some fans. I also got a tech bench from TexBill. Paulieg will be supplying the PSU.

    I will start coordinating the contest and post up once I have something. :toast:

    I may be able to donate my EVGA motherboard in acouple weeks if you are interested in doing a socket 775/ddr2 rig, but that depends on me finding a P45 chipset board to replace it with.

    Guys, I got a turn key rig setup for the prize, it's only missing one thing. A PSU.

    If someone can get me a PSU, I will send the rig to the winner and that's it. It's not a very powerful rig for crunching or folding but it'll definitely get someone started.

    I'll post specs a little later. Let me know who has a spare PSU laying around.

    I've got a lot going on right now, but around the 30th or 1st I will know for sure if I can donate one of my small PSUs (likely to be my 430w Antec Earthwatts). Ill post back if its possible.

    I have a Corsair HX620 PSU that I can offer up. It's missing a fan grill and a couple of cables were modded by the previous owner, but it works just fine.

    I would say minimum 450.

    one dub, the 430W will be okay as is, if the winner needs to upgrade later then they can go ahead and do that.

    Hey CP, nice incentive and I got tons of PSU's lying around but they are generic ones stripped from proprietary builds so probably not much use.

    Good luck to the winner. :)

    And Thanks again CP ;)

    EDIT: I have a Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 to donate BTW.
