    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I will be down on ppd for awhile. I had a gpu in one of my rigs take a crap on me. I was planning on buying some more gpu's soon so I will bring that rig back online then.

    No chance to run it on an iGPU or salvage a GPU from another rig?

    It has no igpu. I pulled the gpu from the x2 for the night to finish out the wu's it has. I don't won't to install the drivers for that gpu as it is a Nvidia card and that system has been running Amd cards and the card it will get when I upgrade will be Amd. I don't want to do the swapping of drivers and confuse the thing somehow.

    I found an EVGA X58 3X SLI board for $50 and decided it was too good a deal to pass up. I figured since I was getting a board, I might as well spend $110 more on an i7 CPU for it, so I did. I'm an old ATI X1300, an Earthwatts 650w, and some RAM from (FIH) The Don. I'm gonna see if I can push it up to 3.8GHz on my $20 Xigmatek Gaia. Gonna make the most of the free electricity and cooler temperatures :D

    And I really need a consistent 20-21k PPD if I'm going to hold off Jstn7477 and Daimus :p

    Someone on [H] had it listed for $70, but said he was desperate to get rid of it and would take pretty much any offer. I offered $50 shipped, and to my surprise he took it. I have $180 invested in this rig, which I'd say is pretty good for hopefully close to 5k PPD :toast:

    That's just an insane deal bro, glad you didn't pass it up man, if I would have had the funds I for sure would NOT have passed it up.

    My main problem now is lack of space. I still have several hundred dollars left from my computer sales this summer, but basically nowhere else to fit computers. Once I have this i7, I might be able to stick one more computer in here, but that would be it. And I don't want to make it too loud in here for my roommate.

    I feel kinda bad because I'm sucking down close to 1kW and probably costing the University nearly two dollars in electricity a day :eek:
    So much for their "turn off the lights & computers to save power" attempt :p

    Could you get in any trouble at all if they found out?

    Doubt it. I can't imagine how they could tell the electricity usage of the individual rooms, and, anyways, electricity is included with the dorms. I guess if they saw the power usage they might think I was growing.....flowers.....but I think I'm OK with just computers. Nothing in the student handbook that says I can't have five computers :p

    I haven't even added a 3rd rig yet! BTW, that case is coming thanks to Sneekypeet. I grabbed the Lian Li PC-100 from him. I wanted to try it because it mounts the motherboard backwards. I was intrigued by it. :p

    The only thing this case wouldn't work well with is video cards that blow air out the back. Fortuantely I'm only putting a 2600 XT just to get video working. The rest of the time either I will be coding away or it will be crunching away. :p
