my sig rig cost $3k BMD(which is the same in USD)... that's board, chip, ram, psu, case, cooler and two 3tb hard drives.
things are expensive here, even when importing it personally.

Back to topic, I would get a New Board & CPU (Save up for CPU) You will get more out of that. GPU, Ehh you said this is more as a Folding rig, so CPU is first for me. Especially with IB coming out, SB will be CHEAP!

I might be able to get my hands on a i7-920 and ram cheaply from a friend, just need a board (probably will be a EVGA X58 SLI3 since I can get it local for ~$329, costs more after shipping importing it myself so just gonna get it retail)
I've managed 4ghz on this chip at 1.35v, which is about as high it will go on a H80, temps peak 80c ambient 75F.

What sort of ppd/power would that pull?
I'm seeing ~15k-25kppd on the charts, but power wise, would it be better to go with this, get a GTX something or go just ahead with another SB rig(~$600)?

I think a 920 can do about 20k ppd. A 2600k can do upwards of 35-40k in SMP last I checked.

I see.

Think umma just replace my main rig with a X79 and 3820, then slot in Ivy-E (assuming they'll still be compatible), and switch over to that.
Would go 4p but the expense is a bit out of reach atm, plus with Piledriver not to far off, I think I'd want to wait for that.

Thanks guys thumb.gif
