Build a low budget farm - Page 2

post #11 of 34
Could just go with a x2 and a cheap mobo that has 3 slots for graphics cards and get 3 460s.

ppd on that thing would be roughly 5k ppd if i am researching that 955be correctly, and that should be at 3.8ghz overclock. price on that rig is $ 355.66 shipped on newegg ...

heres a rig within his budget, with a fairly decent oc you could be pulling 35k ppd with 24/7 bigadv folding, or roughly 17k ppd with regular smp folding... and down the road, just throw a gtx 460 in it, and youll get another good 8k - 10k ppd...

TOTAL incl shipping ~ $ 452 (-$ 20 mail in rebate on the psu)

possible gpu

TOTAL after gpu upgrade incl shipping ~ $ 612.25 (- $ 50 mail in rebate psu/gpu )


this is some stuff i just threw together real quick, there might be some headroom to downgrade the price...

Actually I don't think he needs a case becuase he said it would just sit on a shelve, so the total would be 400$

Can you do -bigadv with a stock 2500k? Seems like it would be worth it to try and scrape together the extra 100$ (especially if you're 50$ under budget atm) to get a 2600k, you would get way higher PPD.

i searched through ocn and theres people running bigadv on 2500k's he could just grab a 2600k for a rough difference of $ 110, meaning after mail in rebates and so on he would come out to roughly $ 722.25 - $ 50 mail in rebates, if he doesnt need a case, total would come down to: $ 667.27 - $ 50 in mail in rebates, so $ 617.27 for a good 48k ppd rig... sounds good to me, im just not 100% sure how a 7850 or 250 be and maybe 4x cheap gpu's would compare in price / ppd output, i would prefer to cpu fold and save the extra power usage of the gpu's ... my intake tho


source for the bigadv info i used:

IIRC, the 2500K can do the bigadv when it is overclocked to 4.8GHz and in Linux.

Yeah someone recommended an h61 board and a 2500k. H61 = no overclock.
