    not so much a buddy went to school with him and so far hes bought 2 rigs this year and has connection to help me make more money so considering we drove to bestbuy in a snow storm and he bought almost exactly $200 in stuff helped me out and i got a free meal its just a win win all around

    he got 25ft ethernet cord wireless adaptors and a 20inch 1600x900 monitor ($99)

    thanks for the complement. my points yesterday was alittle over 4k :D so if it unlocks to a quad and i get the X2 4200@3.1ghz and the P4 661 running that would bring me to ~5kPPD i would think

    EDIT:If i had a 25ft Ethernet cord i would have my rigs in my big closet, noise and heat would no longer be a problem

    random BSOD and OS corruption errors on about 25% of the WUs. The cheap 300w PSU is out of it and is now running a 380w Antec Earthwatts. The ram passed memtest and the OS has a clean install. I think i am going to give it a go this weekend and see what happens.

    my 500w barely manages the q9550 and the 8800gts. it wont get hot, but getting warm in a benchcase, should route one, to extreme stress, the PSU has to take. and the q9550 is heavily underclocked, and pulls lower watts than the PH1;)

    PSU problem, one would believe instantly. try to install XP two times,so you have an xp dual boot, so you can always reuse working files from it, to copy/paste fix your other xp. this should speed things up, even with constant os corruptions:D

    you dont know, how much it pulls from 5v and 3.3v ;-).... i bet that kills the PSU. how are your everest values during 100% load?

    your saving another dual core rig, when using the quad. surely, this will have its effects.

    Oxycodone is very strong. an 80mg tab (the biggest) will probably kill a person without tolerance:eek:

    how often do you have to take that, and how much do the doctors prescribe you?

    Stuff is really nice. should be smuggled directly from the Dutch ;-)
