And what the heck is Folding and why is everyone here talking about it and doing it? And yes I googled it and read the wikipedia thing and unless you just love science and leave your computer on all day and night I am not sure what the attraction is. And I admit my general computer ignorance publicly. Nice emoticon though. Really, what's the scoop here?

if you go 1156 may be worth it to secure a xeon 3440(not any lower because those dont have hyperthreading). lower base clock than the 870, but helluva clockers.
