post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Please help me choose hardware (CPU,MoBo,Ram,GPU,PSU,etc.) for my new 24/7 Folding build
I think I'll use i7 or Phenom X6 for -bigadv
and two or three GTS450 for GPU Clients
I have $700-$800 Budget for this build

Thanks

PS. Happy New Year

What do you prefer a farm of GPUs or i7 bigadv?
Some people like low power consumption folding rigs, thats why I am asking.

Shop the for sale section and get a I7 and some cheaper cards.The 260's are pretty good folders but you might be able to get 450's in your budget.Go for a I7 and lower cost cards.Cards are easier to upgrade from than a whole mobo/cpu combo.I average 25k from my I7 folding bigadv.

That is twice I am called that.

I don't care much about power consumption.

Thanks I know CPU/MoBo are harder than GPU to upgrade but I don't know which will perform better in this budget.



Or You can recommend another spec. which is the best for this budget.


Thanks everyone
