Needing a new rig


Recommended Posts

So quite a bit has happened in the past couple weeks. This has caused me to have to stop folding for a while.

 

Firstly, my lappy has died and I can't find what the exact problem is. I just know it won't power on at all.

 

Then I lost my job and g/f kicked me out. Went to stay with family for week and got offered a new (better paying) job!! Girlfriend even called and asked me to come home. Then an old friend just gave me 2 excellent condition HDMI monitors.

 

So now I just need to put another rig together to get folding again. I may have to buy a few components at a time, and trying to get best bang for buck.

 

Any recommendations on what to look into?

If you want to run SUSE go for a higher end Nvidia card from GTX 960 and up. ;)
