I need to be taken off of the list of parts needed (trading for an i7 rig). I sold the e8500 rig, as it just sat there on my floor while I used a nice quiet emachines. I'm going to quietly bring the emachines back online (don't tell my roommates) with an e1200 so at least I can contribute a little. Also, @ flak, is the ram you need ddr or what? I have several pieces of laptop ddr and I think sdram that will never see use. Let me know. They're of course very light, so if shipping is cheap, which i assume it will, i'll consider it my donation, since i've been AWOL on crunching for awhile.
