    If it doesn't look like you'll make it by the end of the day at the time I get home from school, I'll throw my GTS450 on your account for a bit :toast: :rockout:

    I failed at pie today, but with the work I put in yesterday, I got the third card back up and should be back in the list with a bit more PPD now too;)

    Ah, well, we can't have pie every day :ohwell:

    I'm going to try and get pie some point, might have to fire up bigadv on the i7 for a bit. That would do it :toast:

    We're gaining

    Latest stats: TPU vs. HWC

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
    0 Team 24hr Avg Last 24hr
    1 HWC 1,153,317 941,872
    2 TPU 1,057,048 1,174,351


    If I could only figure out how to raise my PPD without raising my electric bill. Maybe replace my 250s with a couple of 450s? According to one of W1zzard's reviews, two GTS 450s will use about 80-100 watts less than my two 250s. Judging by what others report, I should more than double my PPD as well. Time to go pinch some more pennies.

    Yep, my GTS450 gives about twice the PPD of my GTX260 and slightly over twice what the GTS250 gets :)

    And it seems to run cool & quiet :)

    Awesome that we're gaining on HWC, I'd love to see us ahead of them!

    Did you happen to read through this thread? I'm thinking about the same thing. I could replace my 2 9600GSO's and my 8800GT(256MB) with one GTS450 and get ~about the same PPD. That is, if it isn't stuck with the 611 WU's. And with prices close to $100 each....

    Not most of 'em ;)
    Keep in mind that I only get ~7.8k PPD on the 611s, whereas I get ~14k on the 9XXs. So, if I can keep getting 9XXs, the GTX450 will get the same PPD as my GTS250 and GTX250 combined, while using less power than either individually ;)
