I am getting a JNCS model W7250 custom work station for playing correspondence chess. It has 2x 8 core boards called the E5-2660 at 2.2G. I think a 16 core set up with cores that hyper thread will be excellent to play software that can utilize up to 32 threads. Additionally I figure I will get lots of ram for a monsterous hash size. 256GB sounds good but if that is more than will significantly show an improvement over the 128GB of ram then I won't get the 256. Is 256 GB of ram going to help me with a bigger hash for deeply treeing out certain positions? In a nutshell I am wanting to build something midway between a normal pc like a single or dual core and rybka cluster. If not these boards are there better high end processors that are good with scaling and integer math. AMDs are better at floating point math and seem to be much slower with chess engines. So I think 16 cores hyperthreading with some massive ram and the online 7 man TB and Hiarcs 14e make for a good set up. I plan on adding lots of databases and making the book openings stronger and oriented for correspondence play. I don't see the point in SSDs or 4 TB hard drives for storing 7 man TB locally if there are online 7 man TB. Am I wrong here or could I benefit from local TB? If some 8 man TB get cracked then I might put some of those on my computer later so I think I will keep the 4TB HD. Any suggestions on how to build a truely awesome rig to represent RYBKA forum in our correspondence matches with other forums please let me know. My budget for this prodject is $12,000.00. I think a truely impressive rig can be had for this.

"If some 8 man get cracked"

Good luck with 1 PB per endgame

this is not as strong a computer as you think.
I am not sure if you can overclock it.
if you can not overclock, you will be only 10% faster than the computer I bought from ebay for 350$.
a lot of ram will not improve your chess performance.
You should have SSD.

Good luck.

off lease servers.
They 12,000$ 3 years ago.
Dual quad Xeons. 8x 3.0Ghz.
Not too fast, but not too bad either.
I have 3 of them.

just 350 dollars a Dual quad Xeon 3.0Ghz?

or i missed something?

if im right,is really really cheap...

about having 3 of them...why?(if i can ask) you play a lot of correspondence chess?

Yes, I will use it  for cc.

here is an example:

2) the processors are dual core: You need to change them with 2x E5472 Xeons:

total: 300$.
you have  a dual quad E5472 (8x3.0Ghz) system. :-)

You need basic computer skills (changing the processors and installing windows etc)

3) If you are in high end graphics, CAD etc, you can get the same system with quadroFX 5600 videocard for 200$ more. (videocard by itself was 3000$ 3 years ago)

4) not as strong as my main computer. It is not high end right now. But this is a very good value. A stable system that can reasonably well compete with todays high end desktop processors.

that is really cheap

really really cheap...

thanks for the info;it is very useful,i have a second hand quad,and maybe in a few months i will be able to afford it

thanks for the info

just one question;what is your main computer?just curious

you want play correspondence chess,OR you would that your computer plays correspondence chess?

if you can affor it,go for 32 cores,and use Houdini 3 with 256 Gb of RAM dedicated

good luck
