I have an e8600, if needed although I will probably try with an e3xxx first, and SF101 posted an e8500 already, so the 8xxx are probably covered unless you can find a cheap 8400
Sorry.. That's what I meant. LoL. Finding it for a decent price is definitely the challenge.

And Slaughter - depending on what we need to fill out the rest of our scores, you can use my E8400 or E6850 for the SPi32 stage if you like.

Looks like I won't be using the SR-2 for the Vantage stage after all. Died spontaneously two nights ago after many months of folding. I've been trying to revive it, but no success so far. Will try a few more things tonight, but it's starting to look like it has already punched its ticket to RMAville. Figures.

Other piece of "good" news: The website from which I ordered the GT 530 canceled my order, saying the item had been discontinued. But then later that very same day, that very same webstore posts a kijiji ad for that very same GT 530. Now they are not responding to any of my emails or voicemails. Nice.

Lastly, bought a 2600k from a guy on [H] in the U.S. Hoping to get it in time to post a halfway acceptable 3DM03 score with the 8800s - if not then a 920 will have to do.
Ouch! That sucks with the SR2 and the GPU :( Looks like that one is going to be tough to find.

When are you going to move on to some dice/ln2 benching? ;) LoL
