    PS3 Sony PlayStation 3 - Forsale

    Due to an unforeseen financial circumstance, my loss is your gain.

    For immediate sale:

    6 Sony PlayStation 3 40gb models, just purchased last December.
    $300, shipping included to anywhere in the USA.

    First six to PM me gets one.
    I prefer PayPal. If you send me check, it will have to clear the bank first before I ship.

    They already have dual boot Yellow Dog Linux installed.

    Get em while they last!

    I can set it up any way you like before packaging it up in the original boxes they came in.

    I'd be silly if I'd say total I'd like to have 300$ for each... which is quite OK for a 6 months old PS3... but that's just me speaking

    Did you sell your entire stock or do you still have any left at home for crunching? Or is GPU the way you are going?

    GPU is too expensive to run 24/7.
    I'm hanging on to two PS3s.

    I am the boss, and yes, when it hits $400, I slow it down a few notches, unlike in the past when I was paying $500 per month for electricity.
    Plus OGR is almost over now, and besides, I hear they will be releasing double precision PS3s in the future

    Too bad you bought your GTX280 so soon, major price cuts now in effect:

    I'm sure everyone knows this, but since this is no longer needed as a sales thread, I'll go ahead and say it.

    Electricity is a MAJOR concern when it comes to crunching. With the new options available, whether it's PS3s, or graphics cards or super-powerful AMD chips that use 150 watts but require $10K boards, power is one of the most important things you can consider. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if there are still people out there that ask the developers of the various projects to make stuff specifically for P3s.

    I would rather say that energy is a MAJOR concern...

    when I bought my PS3, energy was a major concern: it "only" needed about 130 W for what some Core2Duo would need beyond 300 W AND the PS3 is cheaper than the whole hardware around a Core2Duo you'd need to have the same output in i.e. distributed.net-OGR...

    What really concerns me is the fact that IB spent money on 10 PS3 and after a certain time he got rid off them. That's something unreal for me but I understand he can afford doing so. He is rich. Rich people have behaves that I can't understand. I am not criticizing you IB. When you buy something you need to know if you can afford the consumptions of it, that's my first rule.
    Another example is the way citizens of USA waste energy, it's amazing! You don't have energy strategies, probably now with the increase of oil prices but I don't know if is it too late.

    off the record: To Americans, is it viable the use of pellets for domestic heat and so on? Anyone?
