Default Advice on a folding machine

I have just recently thought of building a folding/downloading and I got a sweet deal on a Intel DX58so. but I would like to do this cheaply, so far what I have

Case: thermaltake spedo
mobo: intel dx58so
cpu: looks like a i7 920 for 150
gpus: not sure yet any ideas?
hard drive: 40g ssd agility2 already had it.
ram: this is where I am confused abit how much do I need because I was looking at kingston 3x4g t1 for 100, then I as a set of 3x2g from mushkin for 50 but i could get a used set of 3x1g for around 30 dollars
I have 300 dollars left in my budget and the chip has eating up alot of that unless I can get my hands on a cheaper chip that would do.

but My real question is what should I cheap out on ram or cpu or gpu?
