After nearly two months... AMD finally got things squared away on their end and will be backing this war like they have twice before. AMD has always been there for our folding team when other companies like Intel flat out say no. So, kudos to AMD for their continued support.
It looks like we need to have 5 person teams this year...
AMD is still in the process of getting retail boxed processors for us, but they should be five PHX6 1100T and five PHX4 970. Now that I know we have CPU's coming I'm going to get some boards, coolers and memory kits coming and once I get that lined up (should be way easier) we can start.
These are nice CPUs:
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Hexa Core Processor (3.3GHz, 6 x 512 KB L2 Cache 6 MB L3 Cache- Socket AM3) - Cost $229.99 each
AMD Phenom II X4 970 BE Quad Core Processor (3.5GHz, 4 x 512 KB L2 Cache 6 MB L3 Cache - Socket AM3) - Cost $169.99 each
It also adds up to $2000 in prizes before any of the rest of the stuff!
If you guys want to come up with a method to make 5 person teams that would be great. I'm going to focus on getting more hardware.
