    Cyberdeals dell server

    Someone should get one of these

    8 core for $900. Or we could all buy one and give those aussies a good run.

    But really would this be good ratio of price to pointsperday?

    Yeah, but by default you can upgrade to a quad for free, but to add the second one, it is 266 more

    No it's not. Choose the following:
    CPU 1:
    Quad Core Intel® Xeon® E5310, 2x4MB Cache, 1.60GHz, 1066MHz FSB [add $0]
    CPU 2:
    DISCOUNTED UPGRADE! Quad Core Xeon E5310, 2x4MB Cache, 1.60GHz [add $0]

    Total price if you don't add anything else comes out to the mentioned $899. If I had $1000 to spare I buy that in a second...

    Crap, you were right, dual duals for no additional charge, but the quads are more =(


    Edit: Hmm, you can go with two Quad Core Intel® Xeon® E5310, 2x4MB Cache, 1.60GHz, 1066MHz FSB for the same price...

    Could ask for $10 AAR donations on the front page and see how many of these could be afforded

    Should roughly fold the same as a 3.2 GHz quad, I think, so is it really worth it for $900? You can build a quad for probably a little over half of that price and shouldn't have much issue getting it to 3.2.

    My current quad build is right at $680 or so.

    Hopefully I can turn it from a wish list to an order soon =)

    Since when is a single-core at twice the speed of a dual core the same power? Two cores at half speed will ALWAYS outperform one core at twice that speed on something multi-threaded such as F@H. Same for 8 and 4...

    This is the best deal that I have seen through Dell:



    Also I believe this is a pin-mod available to run the two quads at 1333 FSB, therefore running them at 2.0Ghz.

    Here is the LINK

    I'm thinking along ben's line ...the dells won't oc, and a single quad should be able to get >= 3.0 ghz, a cheap mobo like a p35-ds3l, and potential memory oc I expect a custom build will come out ahead.

    It is nice to see downward pressure on prices.
