EVGA 8800GS + EA500 combo $100 AR
OCZ 2x1GB DDR2-800 $25 AR
-with-
e2180 $70
Foxconn P35 $73 AR
-or-
X2 4800+ $60
Biostar AM2+ $60 AR

Intel total: $268 AR
AMD total: $245 AR

Both of these should give large folding ppd using the GPU2 client. This gives you a complete upgrade package for an older folding box, complete with memory and a very efficient powersupply.

If nothing else, the 8800GS + EA500 for $100AR is an excellent upgrade if you have a folding box with integrated GPU.

Yep, I did too. I already bought a setup like this to throw in my mom's system (she folds on a s478 celeron I built like 6+ years ago) which should expand the ppd nicely. I may buy another to upgrade my sister's system (P4 2.6/512MB) since stuff's just so cheap now.

:beer:

EDIT: Nope, the $30 rebate is only good for ONE deal per household.

I'm not...mine for this 8800GS is already filled out and ready to mail. Got the card last night, I'll have numbers next week to post concerning its performance in the GPU client.
