    f@h spare parts

    Long shot, but...

    A friend gave me an old PCIE Radeon X1800XT that hopefully works.
    Never had a PCIE mb so I can't test it.

    Not the best card but a start, better than what I'm churning out now (close to 8 years of folding http://folding.extremeoverclocking.c...php?s=&u=27671).


    If anyone has parts they're not using I'd like to piece together a dedicated f@h machine that'll run a gpu client.
    Been looking at the bare-bones packages but not what I can afford right now.


    Family illness/very young friends makes me want to put out a few more points if I can.
    Please let me know if you have something you can part with at a reasonable price.

    Thanks

    Hey

    Thought of making a list but figured I'd see what you guys might have.

    The video card's ancient but nice, I think the lowest ATI that'll run a gpu client.

    Don't even know it it works though and no board to test it.

    I have several old cases, nice old 380 watt Antec psu (doubt it'd have the juice for a good card but figure it depends), 3.0 P4 and a few gigs of PC3200.

    Figured I could buy a bit. Money's tight, of course, but trying to see what I could put together compared to a new bare-bones kit.

    Thanks.

    Hey Dan,
    I might've tracked down a spare board and cpu, won't know until middle of the week.

    If so I can check and see if this video card works.
    Thanks for the offer, I appreciate it. Will let you know when I hear something.

    Got a second rig pieced together.

    Amazing motherboard and whomping video card but Stanford dropped this line from their gpu client list.

    Looking for a new video card now, not even my main rig.

    Thanks again Dan, appreciate the offer.

    If you have someone else that can use the parts I'm dead in the water at the moment.

    Ya that card is too old. GPU Tracker can force compatibility on some older cards, but you still need at least a Radeon 2000 series, and I imagine that goes very slowly.
