Only ~$50 more for a 2600k... I don't know if you're open to taking outside donations or not, bit that would be an awesome prize.

I'd take that server for a price. But what what kind of PPD could you expect from it? And are the CPU's upgradable?

Beyond that.. $250. How about some high speed ram? Two of these would make prizes for two folders. 8GB is enough for a dedicated folding rig, and for most of us, getting faster ram will improve our PPD.

I think different people would get greater benefit out of different components. The 1U server would be a pretty good cover-all in that it already works without adding any components. Some people would get better use out of a video card, some people might be a couple sticks of DDR2 ram away from putting another system up. I know PERSONALLY, memory, a cpu, a 400-series NVIDIA card, etc won't do me any good unless I can find another power supply. Power supplies are the component I happen to have less of. If you want to help people increase their PPD, maybe a $50 newegg gift card would be more helpful to some than a specific component. But anything that runs on it's own is another universally helpful option.

With my ram option, there's $50 left for international shipping! So even us on the other sides of the pond can have a go!

Gift certificate's on newegg wont work for us.

It was a suggestion as an alternative. Money orders would be better internationally, but could be spent on other things. Personally, I have more ram than I can use. More DDR3 would collect dust in my house unless it's better than CL7 at 1600mhz.

It would be, I would think... ram for folding would be 2133...

I was under the impression that 2133mhz and CL10 wasn't a significant upgrade from 1600mhz and CL7.
7 / 1600 * 1000 = 4.375ns
10 / 2133 * 1000 = 4.688ns

Was that the correct formula?

Regardless, my point was not everyone can make use of a single piece of hardware with what they have. It varies from person to person.

A gtx 560 Ti could be a very nice option. It can get roughly 3-4k more ppd than a 460 and would not be much different as far a power requirements. I agree that letting the winner choose what would best fit their situation would be a good option. I currently have an open slot for a card but would also gladly house a 1U/2U server. Both seem like good options to me. As others have said, I think the server option would be more likely to be utilized for folding 24/7.

I didn't vote, but I usually donate Graphics cards because they are far more universal and can be used by anyone with a PC...(generally speaking that is)

Set a price and let the winner pick a cpu, gpu or memory of their choice. Also give them the option of picking over the set price and sending the additional cost to you.
