Ah I thought you meant $1200 each lol. Yeah stupid tax, I feel the pain.

Cheapo case: I just went for a cheap SFF case that has a build in PSU. I figure that a 250w supply should be enough. Only problem I see with it that it doesn't have any holes for extra fans/air flow. But It's $40

Hard Disk. Cheap quality disk. Could get any with Linux on a flash drive if you want to go cheaper. $35
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136075

Ram: 4gb is probably overkill but I got some that is P67 compatible. $55
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231439

Mobo: Cheapest 1155 mini itx board. I went Mini itx for form factor so when you have 3-4 of these you only have a tiny tower instead of a giant tower. $100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157238

CPU: i7 2600k. You said you wanted it. $330
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115070

Subtotal $560

I like the mitx approach (and when the p67 mitx boards come out, I'll re-think it). Same problem though: H67 chipset. Can't OC. Not to mention I need room to fit a decent air cooler in there (or save enough cash to offset the cost of a H50 setup).

Well that was the first try. I didn't realize you would be OC'ing until after I posted. I shall have to try again.

For the case, I would buy a refurbished one from the CM store. I bought my case from there for $25 shipped a while back. You can also get a cheapo case from craigslist too.

How about this setup?

CPU: i7 2600k. $300-330

Ram: 4gb, P67 compatible $55
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231439

Case: CM Elite 360. 350W Psu. Tons of holes for fans. Plenty of room for a H50. $60
http:
//www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119205


Mobo: Cheap P67 platform so you can OC. Supports i7 2600k. $135
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128476
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...aspx?pid=3765#

Right at $580. I didn't include a hard drive of any type because you can always pick up some cheap flash drives or used hard drives from OCN.

oops double post. I blame slow internet. But I'll make use of it. 4x4gb flash drives for $30. If you make 4 machines that $7.50 for memory per machine.

Nice build. Actually pieced something somewhat similar together at MC--except I only went with single 2gb stick. Will 2 vs 4gb ram affect smp only folding? Also--(thanks to Frank for reminding me to check) the CM store has some great deals on CM 690 II's right now. Awesome cases.

Not sure what 2gb vs 4gb do for folding. You'd have to check with folders for that answer. I just went for 4 cause it seems to start becoming the norm. And it has some decent timings, designed for Sandy and was fairly cheap.

4gb is better for folding. i was doing 2gb and it wasnt working out well enough for me- but that'S windows and i use the rig while folding. idk about ubuntu
