Re: [FP] FYI: The purchase of the two Core 2 Duo blades

The package that appears in usa2k See Profile's post is the package that was discussed in the board thread that lead up to the membership vote.

The only additional item is the power supply, at real cost.

»[FP] Board Only Thread re: The Purchase of Two New Blades


The membership vote closed on January 3, 2007.

»[FP] All Members: Result of Vote for New Equipment


That vote was the result of a number of threads debating and re-debating the good, the bad, and the ugly of buying/not buying new hardware.

Basically, at this point, the BOD will be purchasing two new blades, with the above configuration. Respectfully, I believe that the time for debate is pretty well ended.

Unless someone has a reason to believe that there is a flaw in any of the chosen hardware, it would seem sensible to move forward, as we could debate configuration particulars forever, and go nowhere.

Sorry, my bad. I thought that was a question, not a statement.

I saw Wish list de···ails.pdf, and just assumed that it was a discussion thread. Didn't interpret anything as being definitely what was going to be ordered.

I think the selections are quite suitable, so no argument from me there.

Cases, OTOH, might be a good idea considering the investment. But that depends if the OP has the room for a case, and could always be added at a later date.

Again, I apologize for misunderstanding.

Sorry if the NewEgg.com tool name sounded like a question.
This should be the final assembly.
