My System Specs

Default

GTX780s are ridiculously good at folding currently. I am not sure how long these WUs will be available but at the moment I am doing 315k w/ two cards.

PCIe bandwidth really doesn't matter with folding.

X79 is a power hog and the price definitely is not worth what you get from PPD out of the CPU, which in my case is about 25k from a 3930k @ 4.4GHz. If I didn't need the PCIe lanes for other purposes I would ditch X79 in a heartbeat.
