Your kidding me right?
No I'm not!! Our intrepid site owner and reviewer needed a room back and sent the Folding Team (and the boinc team) a bunch of new and or reviewed boards to help us push up our average. These are slightly dated but top of the line boards.
There are also 2 pre-folding vid cards, I want some help from you guys on this, we will do what you want. We thought about selling them on the Trading forum for extra shipping money, or letting you guys bid on them here, or just send them to who wants them for shipping. Some help for the shipping has already arrived, but frankly it won't be enough. As I said I'll leave that up to you. If there is any extra $ we will get it out in the form of some help getting the boards running.
the 2 vid cards
The two asus vid cards look nice an en8600gts with a fancy cooler, claimed 10C improvement, and a en7900GS TOP, claimed 20% faster than stock, and includes ghost recon.
Now for the good stuff. As I said these are very nice boards. 7 are sli/crossfire one of which has 4 pci-e 8x slots and an matx with one 16x slot.
Understand that the purpose is to get these guys folding, gpu preferably right away and hopefully full up eventually. This will entail quite an expense for some, as the gpu's aren't cheap. Keep that in mind while ogling the goods!!
Post here what board you would like, and when I close it you guys will have to work out who gets what. I know you're all in for the long haul, so I'm not going to get into the middle of that.
One suggestion I'd like to make, and this is strictly up to you guys, is to fold the boards under user name Ryans Gift (or something more creative) and use this as a replacement for the AAF effort. The whole team can take pride in it and help bringing them up to max output.
Anyways, on to the good stuff
Asus M2npv-vmAM2 MATX even has an EE processor installed (judging by the driver cd). this is the only non-sli/crossfire board, and it has integrated 6150 graphics as well as a pci-e slot.
The rest in the amd camp are one s939, Asus a8r32mvp crossfire board, and 2 more AM2s, a nice Fatality abit sli board an9 32x, and another Asus, m232-mvp http://www.pcstats.com/artvnl.cfm?articleID=2022
In the intel camp,
