An eVGA SR-2 w/ a pair of 4GHz 6-cores will easily break 100k w/ a 24 thread bigadv client alone.

I don't know about easily. You'd need a TPF of about 13 minutes to hit 100k PPD. A single i7 at 4GHz does about 30 minutes per frame, so if scaling is perfectly linear it would be doable, but only just. As far as currently-available hardware, that kind of PPD is pretty much unobtainable within the scope of consumer-grade hardware. I suppose it could be possible if you're running a -bigadv machine with quad-core CPUs in a 4P or 8P setup, but that's getting into ridiculous territory.

*Assuming you use four GTX295s, that would give about 60k PPD from the GPUs, so you'd need to make up 40k from SMP. To do that, I figure you'd need a 4P Nehalem Xeon rig at minimum, since I know of people running 2P setups who don't see those kinds of numbers with -bigadv.

6 Gigabyte 890FX Boards w/ 6 Core Thuban's , populated each with 3 GTX480's.

Thats what I would build.

I'd finish my basement as well, after upgrading its electrical. Though the reason I'd upgrade the electrical is to help me place F@H computers without worrying about tripping breakers.

As for the SR-2, Movieman over at XS has a couple of X5680's in one and it yields him between 104-108k in WCG performance.

Look at the clock and the core voltage.


(Credit to Movieman)

It apparently only draws 685W from the wall.

They're 32nm, the voltage on them is supposedly very, very nice. I'd also like to add that that was on air and he's planning to go water.
