How about a 6950?
*note- a Radeon 7770 or GTX 650/650Ti and up are currently the preferred cards for gpu folding....
I think someone was selling a 270 for ~120
EDIT: NVM, it's sold already
Guess I'm already in... I fold purely for cancer research. Hope this gets more doing the same!
Love the sig!
@Norton pm me some PayPal email or something and let me know how much you need for your preferred GPU/CPU.
Only just got around to seeing this thread, and I'm already absolutely dumbfounded how generous people are being, and it's barely been a day. A huge applause to everybody around here, truly one of the best and most generous forums around!
Hey Norton, you want the rig I'm building? I was planning on running it as a cruncher under my name for a little while, but if you want it for this, it's yours.
And for those of you that don't know about what I'm building, it consists of -
CPU- Amd 1055t (received from a trade with @ThE_MaD_ShOt )
Heat Sink- Scythe Mugen4 (not sure exactly who this is from, @Norton secured it for me for the build)
MB- AsRock 870 Extreme 3(received from a trade with @ThE_MaD_ShOt )
GPU- ASUS Direct CU HD7770 (donated to me by @mjkmike )
PSU- Corsair CX500 (donated by @Norton )
HD- 250gb WD Blue donated by @t_ski
Software- Win 7 Pro 64 bit (provided by @brandonwh64 )
Case- Thermaltake Urban T21(not sure exactly who this is from, @Norton secured it for me for the build)
edited to show who donated what for this build
so do you
Apparently I don't
I would like to participate on this by making a case for the rig in aluminum sheet.
Also, I've been watching this thread for a couple days- http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/i-got-a-speeding-ticket.202006/
Oh and for anyone that doesn't understand FUCK CANCER
Am I understanding you correctly, you want to make and donate a custom made aluminum case? AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As you know I have extra CPU coolers Ill shoot you a PM in a few Norton
With @ST.o.CH donating a custom aluminum case from the EU and @BarbaricSoul donating a nearly complete rig in the USA it looks like we can build 2 tribute rigs and donate one to each area (USA and EU/UK)
Are there any objections to this?
feelings shared ... THAT IS TOTALLY AWESOME!!!
ive got a http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/HD_3870_SCS3/ hanging around, be more than happy to donate it if it any use to the cause
not from me (btw, the rig will be 100% complete when shipped)
thats a great idea
More is better.
Thanks to the generousity of this community we have two PC's under construction (one for the USA and one for the EU) more details TBA
Need to go out for a few hours- will update the OP when I return... please PM @RCoon in the meantime if you have any donations for the EU rig
As an additional note, @Norton has just mentioned that all parts in the original OP are for the EU rig, thanks to @BarbaricSoul . Let me know if you're a cruncher in the EU and happy to accept the rig for your WCG fleet. Also let me know if you'd like to donate any parts but need help with shipping
I've been doing a lot of folding for cancer and HIV. Especially because these two are the most evil diseases and because a lot of people that i know had cancer. I'm not doing it 24/7, but i've been doing it for several months, some of it even on GPU and 8 threads for a massive compute power. I often fire up Rosetta@home/CommunityGrid and run it for month or two. Small, bu contribution non the less.
I'd love to start my crunching "career" for such a great cause, but alas I'm a bit restricted at the moment, which prevents me from crunching enough for the sheer worth of the cause. But if there's something else I can do or something I can donate that can help out in memory of this TPU community advocate, please tell me
