My System Specs

Default Folding box and media server

Hello folks,
I want to get a new system, primary destination SMP folding and media server. I want to know what can I get best from ~300-350$, mobo+cpu+ram. There is no rush whatsoever. For the moment we don't know if a highly clocked i7@5GHz will be able to still process bigadv, provided we will fool the client again in Linux, so core i7 2600k is out of the question for now. I was thinking of getting a Xeon E3 1220 (209$ free shipping at newegg.ca) and a H61/H67 mobo with 4GB of RAM. What do you think?
