I offered a GT430 + $20 but he wasn't interested. And you'd be surprised at the prices you can get on Kijiji/CL. I sold a couple AppleTV2's after 2 years and got back double what I paid. :P

RFD/Forums = Generally lower sale price but better quality people/reputable
Kijiji/CL = Better sale price but flakey people without etiquette

That's based on my previous experiences. :P

Well then you can't argue with crazy. I mean the computer is more than 4 years old, overpriced by at least $150, and running Vista.

Save the cash for DICE!!!

Updated OP, AMD stage is full now. That AM2+ score sticks out like a sore thumb, especially next to the runs by 69_Goat and Gav777, very nice work guys. Not sure if we are going to be to find the last two graphics cards so update where you can. Especially if someone has a Sandy Bridge chip they can work on for the BCLK stage. The one I used went back to my brother so I can't even give it another run. Keep pushing!

Wow pretty incredible clocks there at PI stable. Very nice work, will have to do something else with that AM2+ score, definitely the anchor for us there. Getting close to the end, managed to work back into first, keep it up guys!

Rockin' result man, very nice job

Your clocks on the 630 were much better than my pos was capable of, but X79 is strong like bull for 3D.

I was hoping to update my stage 1 trinity score sometime in the next week, but my second session benching with dice has resulted in a maimed 5800K.

Might have been a little over-zealous with the voltage

Ouch, that hurts. Lost a couple of boards to BIOS flashes. I posted a new score for Stage 5 and that is all I'm going to be able to do. Leaving for Mexico today to leave all this crappy white stuff for a bit, so I won't be posting anything further. Good luck guys!

I recently lost my MIVG-Z to a bios flash. :P

I'll see what I can do. Ras bring me your SS before you go! Enjoy Mexico! :)

I'll try to up the SB BLCK score tonight but I'm not expecting much as last time was a complete failure.

If my volt modding stuff gets here ASAP I'll try to up the GT430 score but that's all I can do there unfortunately and I'll start tweaking my 8400 and pickup some DICE for the weekend.
