Hey guys I was thinking about buying 3 parts cause they are on sale at new egg right now.

Should I buy them now or wait until I can test them? I was thinking of getting the Video Card, PSU, and Ram.... I have an old comp lying around but idk if I could even test my parts on it. I dont want to buy the parts, wait 2 months, then find out that the parts are broken...

What computer do you have currently?

If it has pcie I dont see why you cant bench it with F@H or something similar for stability, as for the PSU you can swap it into the older system as most modern components have the 20+4 motherboard pin so you should be fine

F@H does not require any high performance cpu if you fold only on the core

Yah so the Comp is an old work comp I took from my old office when they upgraded XD

I used it for about a month then got a laptop.

Its an HP Compaq convertible Minitower DC6700
It does have a PCIe slot but it can only have up to 4gb of Ram

it also has a 365w PSU
IDK if putting a new PSU into it will do anything to it cause it is a factory HP

I do know that EVGA graphics cards are supposed to have a 3 year warranty (at least the GTX 670 FTW) so that cover it if it doesn't work right?

The power suply is also supposed to have a 3 year warranty

IDK about warranties on Corsair RAM...

Will these warranties be good if I plug the products in for the first time in a month or two and they don't work out of box?

OEM PSU's for prebuilts might as well say 1500w, dont believe anything you read about a OEM psu for a prebuilt lol

ram and all that wouldnt matter, as you would only be testing the GPU core with Folding@Home

As long as you register all your parts, you will be fine. But if you want to test your components before finishing your build that would be my suggestion for ya

Ok, I also have a friend that just built a new comp so if I REALLY need to check I guess i could drive over to his house and try the parts out XD (that is if he says yes)

I think that and the warranties should keep me in good shape IF anything goes bad with the parts. I guess I'll take the risk. Thank you!
