    930 core (1860 shader), mem I think is at 925 or something
    I think weeks might be overly ambitious, but I'm sure we'll make it before too long
    So one of your i7s did in fact fetch a bigadv?

    Hi. No i'm not crunching, and yes i'm roughly at 50000-55000 ppd, depending if i'm gaming and if nothing goes wrong. Damn those -bigadv units are long to finish. No place for errors!

    I have the chance to pay around 5 cents/kWh, so anything i can get my hand on is folding, even the rigs i've put together for friends (I'm asking a year of folding time in payment of my services!)

    I typically ask for crunching in return for help, but a lot of people end up removing BOINC anyways :(

    If it's a close friend's PC, you can always monitor and remind them...:slap:

    And i don't think my coworker ever realized that she was surfing (with a 4,00 ghz e5200) with the smp client minimize...

    I do remind people, but I don't like to bug relatives or friends, then they get irritated :ohwell:

    The fact that they are amazed at their computer's performance help a bit when it actually comes to reminding : Just let it run!

    The next step is to upgrade the 9800gx2 and the gtx 260 with something more powerful. I think it's time for fermi... Can't wait to sell those.

    True...but a lot of people are suspicious of 100% CPU usage :( :ohwell:

    Something to keep in mind is that Fermi cards do use more of the CPU :(

    And while my GTS450 gets 14k PPD on the 9XX PT WUs, it gets a tad under 8k (even OCed) on the 611s.

    The GTX460 gets about 15k on the 9XXs (OCed) and about 10k on the 611s, so it may be a better option for you ;)

    How much more cpu does it use? My FahCore_11 process never exceed 3%, averaging 2-2,5%. Does the gpu3 .exe consumes a lot more?

    And the card that will fold in the future depends entirely on the sale price of the old ones!

    It is nothing, Chicken patty. Your team is quite a bit more alive than the old one. Choose it because i was giving 50000ppd to the default team. I choose this team because tpu is one of my favorite tech site:)toast:) and i pretty much always ended here when i was :banghead: setting up my clients...

    It's great to have you :)

    I don't remember how much of my i7 the GTS450 uses, but I know that GPU3 causes far more of a hit to SMP/bigadv PPD than GPU2 does :ohwell:

    Since I'm trying to do -bigadv on my second sig rig I don´t run Fermi on that one but on my other rig GPU3 takes around 10 % vs less then 1% on GPU2 (one card in both cases).


    And welcome to the team.
