    I might have a 512mb stick of DDR2 667 available next week from upgrading a client's machine, so I'll let you know.

    And I'm in South Africa, so a little bit closer.;)

    Well i know you guys work hard at crunchin and folding so i have this combo in the FS section and i lowered the price to 70$ shipped. If your really interested in it and you need it to replace a cruchers, i would go as low as 65$ shipped (parcel post) for this combo to a dedicated cruncher.

    it is indeed 100k. Im trying to think of other ways to boost my PPD for the competition. For those who are running the CPU clients, is the PC still usable when its running with CPU priority set to low? How much damage will browsing the web, playing video and music, and using office hurt the bonus?

    i haven't ever had a problem it hits performance about as bad as crunching does. Now the PPD will go down by a few xxx but shouldn't be too bad. no idea on the bonus..


    anyone else not getting any work with the SMP client?

    Might be able to get you my 54g USB stick cheap if my new WirelessN stick arrives tomorrow and works as expected. It does take a little finesse with the drivers to work in Win X64. Ill post up if I can do it.

    Reaper, any contribution to the team helps, def get your hardware setup for the Chimp Challenge- one name, one team, beat EVGA :D
