i know this isn't the FS/FT forum, but i thought the mods might let it slide since this for sale thread is so pertinent to distributed computing... at any rate, like the title says, there are 4 Opteron 6128 8-core CPUs for sale on [H]ardForum for only $300 shipped right now. the thread was just posted today, and i don't suspect they'll last long at this price. keep in mind that these bad boys still sell for $260 new (each)! the only downside would be the extra expenditures on 4 CPU coolers (CoolerMaster Hyper 212+'s or EVO's would be perfect for something like this, and inexpensive to boot) and a G34 4-socket mobo (which won't be inexpensive, and that may be a tremendous understatement). i'd snag these myself, but i don't see myself being motivated enough in the near future to spend the additional $700-$800 on a mobo and coolers... any takers?
