I'm not too sure about this, but I heard using the SB's on-board GPU does not affect the CPU performance at all.

I could be wrong though, in that case, he could go for something cheap like an HD5750 or even lower.

I haven't seen anything that makes me think the iGPU on SB CPUs takes any sort of CPU time. The iGPU is not used as a CPU when it's not displaying a picture so it's not like if you didn't use it it would be contributing. It's much more electrically and monetarily prudent to use the iGPU unless it means paying much more for a Z68 which it usually does not.

Anyways the maximum I can use from them is $1300, think I can build a sexy SB rig for that?
with that much money .. you might build 2 sb (2600k) folding rigs

This I'm not sure about....I could go entirely dedicated....which I don't mind, but would my AMD X4 with a 6870 be good enough for gaming?

If it's going to be dedicated to the team (Only i7 2600k Folding on it) you could spend most of it on a good case, motherboard, RAM, and just use dedicated graphic card if you don't plan on using it for anything else.
I was considering the spare 4670 I have laying around...but I might order something cheap since the 4670 lived in a bath of mineral oil for about 6 months.

If this is a dedicated folding rig then I probably don't need SSD caching meaning I probably don't need a Z68 mobo.... I'll take suggestions on this one! As I'm an AMD guy and know little about Intel lol

Hahah...well if I could fold for two slots I would!

it doesn't need to be folding for TC only
post #2426 of 10417
I would go Z68 without a doubt if it's dedicated, there really isn't a reason to get another GPU when SB has a GPU in it. Until I see a reason to believe that it would detract from the folding I don't believe that it will for a second. My reasons for it not detracting is that the iGPU is just turned off in P67 boards, so it's not contributing, and the iGPU doesn't share resources with the CPU, it's separate.

The decision of whether or not to make it dedicated is up to you and you know best if what you have is enough for gaming for you. Personally though I think your current rig is fine for gaming in the short term, but if you don't expect to be able to have money to upgrade past this $1300 for more than a year than I would want this money to get you a better personal use rig. If we went dedicated, it would cost around $600 or if we went for personal use we'd likely spend all $1300. The best case scenario would be if you could spend ~$600 now on a dedicated rig, save the $700 that's left and then in the next 6-10 months save another $600 to have about $1300 to spend on a personal rig for you then. That would get you to when the next generation of GPUs and IB is out.

Let us know what you want to do as far as personal use and folding or just dedicated folding and we can go from there.

I think I'll go dedicated 2600k for folding and use my current rig for gaming rather than sell it. That being said I can use Ubuntu for the OS rather then spending $100 on another copy of Windows right?

I want 5.0 GHz on my folding rig. Again I truely don't mind submerging it in this what-so-ever if that's what it takes to get there. At the same time I'll easily spend a lot of a water cooling setup to overclock my cpu like crazy.

My goal is to be Number 1 in whatever category I'm folding in, and I'll do what it takes to get there

Alright well I would go with a 2600k from a microcenter if you have one nearby or anywhere if you don't.

This motherboard, also available here as an open box for cheaper.

The RAM I haven't seen anyone say that 8Gb is recommended yet for a dedicated rig running only native linux and folding. For a dual purpose rig like mine 8Gb is advised but unless somebody in the know tells us otherwise I would go with as fast of a 4Gb kit as you can. So IMO that means these, unless you want to spend twice as much to go from 2133Mhz to 2200Mhz and get a fan for them too which I would say is not worth it. The 2133Mhz seems to be a great value though.

I don't know what you have planned for cooling but something like a H100 is hard to beat especially if you slap some high speed fans on there.

And yes running native linux you would not need to buy a copy of windows.

Go get THIS ONE if you can view and buy it .....
For folding, 4gb RAM is ENOUGH.

To be number 1 in a category with a 2600k, you'll have to fold in i7-2... and then you have the monster to contend with.
