If you want to keep it in the reasonable range, an overclocked 2600k (on water cooling) can get you 80-85k ppd plus on hugeadv folding using Linux. Really good bang for the buck there. You COULD get a hexacore, but you'll only get maybe another 5-10k ppd from it for all the extra expense.

Certainly you can go into the UNREASONABLE range and get a dual cpu SR-2 or etc...or even more. But again, price versus performance. You could get multiple 2600ks or similar....or even go with GPU folding and do triple 590s or some such. But I still think cost per performance while we have the hugeadvs, the 2600k is the "playa"

Alright well I would go with a 2600k, from a microcenter if you have one nearby or anywhere if you don't.

This motherboard, also available here as an open box for cheaper.

The RAM I haven't seen anyone say that 8Gb is recommended yet for a dedicated rig running only native linux and folding. For a dual purpose rig like mine 8Gb is advised but unless somebody in the know tells us otherwise I would go with as fast of a 4Gb kit as you can. So IMO that means these, unless you want to spend twice as much to go from 2133Mhz to 2200Mhz and get a fan for them too which I would say is not worth it. The 2133Mhz seems to be a great value though.

I don't know what you have planned for cooling but something like a

is hard to beat especially if you slap some high speed fans on there. Slightly cheaper but still an excellent cooler would be a , and the cheapest I would go would be a with another fan added on there.

For a PSU I would ask tator tot in this thread what he thinks the best wattage and specific model is for a dedicated folding 2600K in terms of efficiency that still fits your price range.

Running native linux you would not need to buy a copy of windows.

A cheap tiny HDD or a thumb stick flash drive to boot from and you should be good to go.

Anything I'm forgetting?

A dedicated 2600k rig can run hugeadv (which is actually just a nickname for bigbigadv) easily and you will see 80+ K PPD in a native linux OS with the build I gave you.
