Well any rig can be folded on. But buy it a 9800GX2(and a decent PSU) and voila, a decent folding machine. Even an 8800GS/96SP 9600GSO would be a good folding card. If it has some pci-e x1 slots, you can cut the backs out of them and put card in there for folding too.


So how much do you think it would cost me to turn it into a folding RiG?

I calculated:

CPU + MOBO = 130$
RAM = 60$
HDD = 50$
DVD Burner = 30$
PSU = 45$
Case = Not specified, 20$?

So this totals to ~335$ NEW.

Is that sound right?

Looks about right.
Since you don't really need it, you can probably bargain like an ass. Try for 150, and take it for anything under 185. Use the argument that you will have to spend 120$ on Windows 7 and another 100$ on a graphics card. You can then get something like a 4650 for 50$ and use your existing retail W7 disc for the reinstall (the one for the i7 build).

even tho that's a good 380W it's not enough for 2 9600GSOs or a 9800GX2. Pick up a good 500-650W for $50-80, and I think 9800GX2s go for around $160-200 used. 2 used 96sp 9600GSOs would probably be more cost effective tho. I think they go for as low as $40 ea, so $80. That's assuming you cut the pci-e x1 or get a cheap riser.

soo... $130-280, less if you find some good used deals.

I would put my $200 somewhere else.
post #26 of 27
Yeah, machine would work perfectly for that - though sexybastard's price is amazing - nice case, PSU , and tuner card already in it with accessories...A+ deal
