Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

I think I'd prefer the LGA1155 to the LGA1366 board, at least for mining. You can pick up a $50 G530 off Newegg instead of having to try and find a cheap used LGA1366 processor, and you could probably even run a display off the IGP and leave all the GPUs dedicated if you really wanted to.

The problem with that board is that it's a socket 1366. Even a used, 3 year old 920 is ~150. The MB in the OP is socket 1155, which is a lot cheaper to shop for. Newegg is selling a socket 1155 Celeron G440 for $41 with free shipping. Much better deal, imo.

you can grab a used Xeon for $50 or so, I'd think

PCI Express 2.0 x16 - 1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot - PCI_E7 supports up to PCIe 2.0 x4 speed

A LGA 1366 Xeon? I highly doubt that.

The only issue with that MSI board is that you're going to need an Ivy Bridge processor in order to utilize the other PCIe x16 slots.  The cheapest are around $200 on Newegg.  Not that great of a deal.

I didnt follow with the new chipset recently. Can you elaborate more on this?

Or you can link me to what you're saying.

Not quite $50 but it is a Xeon which means it is much more reliable than el-cheapo Pentium/Celeron.

According to the manual, it like 6 slots, but I could be wrong.

Slots
  2x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots
  1x PCIe 2.0 x16 slot
  - PCI_E7 supports up to PCIe x4 speed
  4x PCIe 2.0 x1 slots
  - When PCI_E4 is installed, PCI_E3 will be no function.

PCI_E1  x1
PCI_E2  3.0x16
PCI_E3/PCI_E4  x1 (shared)
PCI_E5  3.0x16
PCI_E6  x1
PCI_E7  2.0x16

Some Z77 boards use PCIe Gen3 PLX switches meaning that in order to use the other slots you need a CPU that has enough PCIe bandwidth (aka Ivy Bridge).  An example is Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H.  If you check out the specifications for expansion slots, it lists that the third PCI Express x16 slot operates at 4x electrically and is "available only when an Intel 22nm (Ivy Bridge) CPU is installed" since it shares bandwidth with the other two x16 slots.  In terms of available PCIe bandwidth from the IB CPU, it would go from 16 lanes → 8/8 when the first two are filled → 8/4/4 when all three x16 slots are occupied.  So it should be able to do 3-way SLI if Gigabyte got certification from Nvidia.

Then this isnt an issue with mining then.

I thought the slot is disabled comepletely.

Some do. Take a look at the table 1/3rd of the way down the page on this look at the MSI Z77A-GD80. The MB supports 8/4/4 with IB, but only 8/8 with SB.

oh, but that's a new (oem it looks like) one..

there!

used one for $25

(hmm, nm, I read the description, it wouldn't work)

ok, the $85 one was good
