Would like to start up a friendly build-off based on cost effeciency vs. performance - Page 2

post #11 of 13

I apologize as I didn't realize that it was for a theoretical build. I was kind-of toying with this idea to see if there would be any interest at all, but it seems that there is some anyway. I will be giving away some electronics to the winner, but won't know what yet, as I review products and get to keep them so whatever I receive during the duration of the contest I'll go ahead and give the winner that stuff. Usually it's network PCI E cards, internet security cameras, hard drives or , well, really anything that Newegg decides to have tested...lol. When you get ur build completed, and it can run wprime 1024ki as well as the futuremark 3d mark vantage or 11 without crashing, put up your screenshots for them as well as your name on a notepad and I'll get them on the sheet. I'll be working on the sheet and put the exact requirements on my 1st post over the weekend as well.

Thanks for ur interest! oldcompgeek

That is the one thing that's harder... Invoices (or snips of them) but I do understand that receipts get misplaced for items purchased locally. For any components that can't be proven by invoice/receipt I will find the current average price by checking Amazon , Newegg, and NCIX.COM'S. It's the only fair way to do it as far as I know. Also, no "bought off a friend" types of things are allowed of course, as the point is to kind of set a loose structure for people that woulkd like to build a budget system and where to get the deals, etc...

There isn't any limit, although the more that you spend, the more that your performance must rise to offset it or there will be no chance of winning. The cost - per - WEI is how this will be judged. And since 7.9 is the ceiling, I'm sure there is a cutoff point to where spending will hurt and not help the score. Thanks for your interest, and best of luck if you decide to build!!

P.S. The formula for scoring is to add the total cost of the machine, and then add the total WEI points then divide the WEI total into the total cost and you'll have your "cost per wei" ... lIKE $12.71 per wei point or whatever. Overclocing will also improve your cost benefit as well as you're not spending anything for that bonus...
