My System Specs


I have also seen an Asus KFSN40-DRE/SAS with two Opterons 2214 on ebay at 80$ here

it would be good start as it has the heatsinks already, you need some registered ECC ram, DDR2, and later you can upgrade to some quad core opterons, on socket F, they are around 50$. You can start with regular SMP folding, then when you upgrade you can get on the -big adv units the right way without having to bend the rules, as I was thinking of doing it. I am thinking of that option too.
I am also interested in getting an HP Proliant DL585 G2 if I find one around locally. They are not that expensive in US but I don't know here.

i am getting a SUPERMICRO H8DME-2 OPTERON 2218 2GB COMBO to start my ventures in (more) cpu folding. i find my gpu folding setup too noisy for my taste. will upgrade later to a pair of Istanbul Opterons.
