just get a small gpu and a 30-60gb ssd then a 750w psu
At stock 4*6128 will draw ~400-500W from the wall meaning you could get away with 450W PSU if you want. My 4*12c (at stock) draws about 500-550W from the wall with a eff. of ~88%. A 4*6180 48c box draws about 700W stock and OC'd it's upwards ~800W. For folding (24/7 load) I'd like to be at around the 50% rated mark of a PSU, so for a 4*6128 I'd go with a high quality 700-800W PSU, or if I'm planning to upgrade my CPU's I'd probably go with a 1200W one, I'm looking at upgrading one of my 1200W to a 1500W, with better efficiency.

Being that a proc draws at most about 100W i guess (115W TDP is a design guide unless you lost the silicon lottery)
400W + about 100W for the entire board you see what i mean, dont count in a GPU because if you're folding on such a platform all you need is a low-end gpu anyway
You don't even need that as most (all?) server board has graphics on-board.Edited by arvidab - 3/31/13 at 6:04am
