The parts that I have around are
Intel i5 671
AMD 8150 FX
Various micro-atx motherboards for the cpu's listed above.
From what I understand Windows is the OS that will most easily work with GPU folding.
What combination of parts (listed above) would you recommend for the best folding rig?
Yes, i would use windows with the hardware you listed.
The 8150 - 7970 combo will net you the most PPD.
The 7970 will get you 90-120k ppd depending on overclock.
The 8150 will net you 15-20k ppd depending on overclock.
Be sure to only fold 6-7 cores on your 8150. The 7970 needs the power of 1 core to "feed" it!
This is the guide i always suggest using:
