    yes, I been considering one as well but did you know that most all Z77 motherboards will run a Xeon ? They do make Ivy xeons that come close to a 3770 in speed even ones with no on chip GPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819117285

    if one does not want to overclock or care about IGPU these have some nice clock speeds , hyperthreading. and turbo boost , 8 meg cache at a lower price point

    That might be a possibility- high premiums in memory, motherboards and cooling to be saved as well if you leave OCing out.

    However, I've been reading about Folding@Home here and wonder if I should give it a shot anyhow. Are the percentages worth it? Is there good overclocking on the cheap?

    Well maybe that's a question for that forum.

    Moreover, while I may play with the CPU, I really don't need a high end GPU and was thinking more of an energy bill friendly one.

    The search goes on....
