I'm doing 800k ppd @FAH.

Goal! Retire 32bit folder & replace with a 64bit machine, DEDICATED FOLDER

To this new box I intend to add a 600w psu gold, & two GTX 1070's, & increase the CFM air movement.
___________

I'm thinking full 'tower" with at least 2 PCIE 16 slots, for full length height video cards; I believe the diff btwn pcie 2.0 & pcie 3.0 is not relevant for folding.

Any used boxes I should look at (links), don't care about brand name.

$200 - 350 range.

___________

I'm thinking 'i5 cpu' would be sufficient, not sure what generation, or if generation of i5 matters?

___________

Would I be better off for cooling by just buying something like an ANTEC 300 case, transfer contents to it? Or just upgrade the the new machines, fans?
