Let's try actively recruiting as many members as possible.
I was averaging about 25K+ ppd on my i7-860 @ 4.0ghz, but you better have a decent cooling solution for these clocks(i.e. triple 120 radiator...).
So will Folding stress the i7 920's more than Boinc???
How much ram is needed to run effectively? My crunchers vary on ram. I have two that only have 2 GB as more is really not needed for crunching.
