I'm looking at acquiring a cheap 4p G34 board. In the US there are places like wiredzone.com that have the supermicro H8QGL-IF+ for $635 which looks like a good deal to me. It seems like I can get one for $650 shipped plus HST at the boarder so about $735. Is there any way to get this board or anything similar in Canada for cheaper?

That's a mighty fine good price.

That's what I figure, I never considered 4p because I figured the boards were $800 plus tax and shipping and $500 per CPU. I think I can put together a system using this board and ebay 2ghz octo chips for $1700 all in with tax. It should do over 250k ppd so I'll call it a day there and stop worrying about things like having a 2500k dedicated for folding.

From 20:46 to 20:12 on a 6904. Too bad I tripped the breaker at 96% of a bidadv, allowed for the experiment to start sooner. So about 3% improvement even though I went down to 16gb and heatsinkless, chips only on one side, old ddr3.
