    Check out my WCG Essentials thread, and post in the TPU's WCG/BOINC thread if you have any questions (or just to say hello and let us know what you're crunching on)
    That's cute :)

    I just realized that I don't have an AC power cord for my new i7 build--does anyone have one they'd be willing to send me?

    What does a person copy before he or she formats to enable continuing WCG once windows is reinstalled?

    I have read things where a person formats his or her hard drive and installs WCG and continues from where it was left off.

    Damn, does that make any sense?

    Thanks Norton. Not really much information there, but I will look.

    Damn computer is acting frigging weird man. Did an update a few days ago and starting having serious problems after that. Restored to an earlier time, now I can't open different files and folders? Gives me some bullshit about not having the proper internet settings? Hello, its a local frigging file LOLOL

    Go to C:\ProgramData\ and copy the entire BOINC folder. I like to zip it first, but that's just personal preference. Make sure that BOINC is closed, first. Once you reinstall Windows, make sure this BOINC folder goes back to C:\ProgramData. Reinstall BOINC, and it will pick up where it left off :)

    Sorry Bud :p if I had any idea you were interested I would have let you know sooner.

    That said, I may put my 6870 Hawk up for sale but I haven't decided yet ;)

    I still got tons of stuff in my FS thread that I can give deals to crunchers on. Also have a video card I have not posted yet.

    I can also let go of my 5770 Xfire cards

    Alright Brandon, buddy, I got to ask what else you are selling that you haven't listed yet and what kind of price are you going to want for the 5770's?

    I have a new (to me) i7 920, RAM, and motherboard on the way. The CPU isn't coming with a HSF; does anyone here have an LGA1366 HSF they would be willing to let go cheap? As long as it performs reasonably well I'd be willing to pay a bit for it :)

    EDIT: NVM, I picked up another Xigmatek Gaia from Newegg for $20 :)

    HELP NEEDED!!! does anyone have an older vintage AM2 mobo? My acer e380's ECS mobo crapped out during a BIOS update and now its pretty much bricked. I'd be willing to pay cash (obviously) for it. I just need anything that takes a X2 3800+ with or without onboard GFX.
