    Congrats Mad_Shot!!!! That is an awesome motherboard. If you want, it also has the "Express Gate" to allow instant internet access. :toast:

    4 GPU limit in AMD drivers and Windows 7. You can split them up though between 2 rigs ;)

    Well that just sucks. I would only try it if I could use 4 together in one system. Oh well

    While I agree you would need one hell of a kickass IMC to be able to power them all and prevent bottlenecking. I mean hell, already have some bottlenecking between trifired cards.

    It all depends on perspective. Is this cool or does the bottleneck get in the way:

    IMHO... Heck no! But don't web surf with 8 GPU's or go take the family out for ice cream in that thing :laugh: :roll:

    Wonder if it would contribute to global warming?

    Thank You All!!!!!!!!!

    Ok, I wanted to ?Thank all those who helped out with this Athlon 64 x 2 that Mad Shot built and sent to me!

    I was completely shocked to find that inside the big box was an actual computer! WOW!

    Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

    I also recieved a couple of LAN cards from Mad Shot, my original request was for help setting up a USB Belgin Wifi adapter that Norton was so kind to send me.

    Mad Shot suggested a LAN card and said he'd send it to me. He also mentioned a surprise. I'm not sure you all can imagine my level of surprise when I opened that box! Better than any Christmas I've had!! ( I have the misfortune of being born, exactly, one week before Christmas. I've only received a few REAL Birthday Gifts, ever! I mostly got a Birthday/ Christmas gift.). The only thing close to this was years ago when my brother Al bought me a tool set from Sears (I have been an Auto Mechanic, in what seems a past life!).

    Anyways, since today was a very tough day, Day Labor job kicked my BUTT, I decided to get my P4 up and running. After a nap, I took it apart, put the new, to me CPU in (found the 2.8 GHz P4 I wanted on e-bay!) and the LAN card. After a brief set up, here I am, typing this on the 'P4 Cruncher!'

    In a few moments, I will have BOINC installed and running! I'm so excited, I may even boot up the MAD Cruncher, as I am calling the Athlon 64 x 2.

    Thanks Again guys! You all have once again, Blown My Mind with your generosity!

    I have a little work to do, hopefully I'll be posting on the Mad Cruncher in a little while!

    It's an AGP video card, don't know the model though. The board uses an NVIDIA nForce3 chipset. :)

    You will be correct Jstn7477. Don't need much in way of video for a linux cruncher. Cpu is all you need to rely on.

    Just basking in the glory of older hardware. So would be interesting to know what it actually is. :)

    Thanks again you all!!

    News---

    Since it took a while to get the P4 up and Crunching, yes I did it all on my own, I'm gonna pass on the Mad Cruncher, for now.

    I have to get up at 4:30 am, which is about 5 hours from now!

    Good night, and I'll be looking forward to seeing my next Milestone tomorrow!! (should break 7000 with This old Comp and the P4 running. I need to speak with my sister, seems she has not posted any results in just over a week. I think she leaves the computer on but signs out all the time. Gotta get her to stop that!

    Sleep well, and the MAD Cruncher should get you around 1000 PPD which should be awesome for you! My A8N-E and X2 4200+ get 900 PPD on Windows 7, and Linux gets even better PPD. :D

    Well, I haven't heard from Paulieg yet, so if anyone wants to send me an AMD PII that unlocks to a quad or even a 3 core that doesn't unlock for really cheap I'd be grateful. Having a lot of trouble with money right now and I'm starting to run into the limits of what I can do with a mere dual core... In turn, I will offer up my PII 550 (which sadly, doesn't unlock) to anyone who could use it for the cost of shipping.
