haha...You caught me. I have a few written, for different budgets. Makes things much much easier.

vernong,
If you do alot of folding, you can stretch the budget just a tiny bit if you can, and get the Q6600 on July 22 for around $270.

You must be thinking ATI graphic cards, which is under AMD's name. ATI graphic cards, are the best for folding.

yeah but the actual speed difference between the two chips just makes going amd useless as the amd's are only better with a comparable speed intel the speed difference is so wide that it doesn't matter
