Financing is fine if you do it right The first tv I bought I paid for over 3 years, and never paid any interest, or financing fees. In fact I saved money by "financing it". They gave me $200 off in hopes I would mess up and miss a payment or something. I am buying my new 55" the same way.

Now when financing is bad. When you miss a payment or don't pay it off before the end of the promotional period. Then they take you to the bedroom and well, you know what.

O.o. I am confused now. How is the i5 2405s? Would be for the GF and her WoW addiction. Might be the only way of me getting an i7 >.>

This has gotten way off topic Sorry

This has went from not wanting to spend alot of money to this. And i7 rig for me and an i5 for the girl. I7 would be bought elsewhere.

2500k is the best ppd/watt/$$. 2600k is a bit less. My 2500k is pulling 60k ppd on a 6904 but it gets pretty close to the deadline by 4 hours.

Just wondering how do you calculate PPD/Watt/$$? (I am wondering, not trying to be a dbag)

Simple version would be:

2500k 65k PPd = $200
2600k 85k PPd = $300

Even though PPD is higher with 2600k, it's not as much higher (20k PPD) as the cost $100.

Make sense?

OP, a 2600k can output about 50k ppd (doing -bigadv) for roughly 250w full system...

You would need 4x 460's to match that PPD, which would be about 3x the wattage + needing a CPU to run them...

A dedicated SB rig is definately the way to go.

My 2500k @ 4.8ghz can output the following numbers 35k ppd (bigadv), 58k ppd (6903 -hugeadv), and 65k ppd (6904 -hugeadv), this is running native Linux and 2133mhz ram.

Just to back your numbers up mate.

6903 WU's:

81k ppd 2600k @ 4.8ghz
58k ppd 2500k @ 4.8ghz
