    Nope- just some changeover/pending isues and I brought the 3rd rig (1045T) to the remote site so it's on the 2-3 day rotation with the other two.

    They get reported tomorrow am (ahead of the storm) :D

    Damn, this fighting with windows 8 has dropped my numbers by half. I believe I will just waist the 20$ and got back windows 7 for now :(

    Its not really the client I am battling, its the connection issues and now the reactivation issues. This storm knocking down my internet at home does not help as well. Once I get the bugs straightened out on windows 8 I hope to be back up there. :)

    Isn't that Win8 an upgrade? If so, install it twice and activate after the second install. Win7 Upgrade made me do that too (Upgrade OS needs something to upgrade from (even on a fresh install).... doesn't care if it upgrades from itself though :rolleyes:)

    and Mad is correct- you need the BOINC version of the Manager (WCG version isn't compatible w/Win8) BOINC version has issues with gpu crunching though :banghead:

    and I left a message on the Win8 thread for wireless adapters- a Netgear WNA3100 works with my Win8 (preview build 8400) but a Netgear WNA1100 doesn't (BSOD's and other headaches)

    Gotta go- CT governor just closed the State roads effective at Noon and I have at least an hour ride to get home (man it's nasty out here today :()

    Glad to hear that things are sorted out! I was afraid that something had happened--your drop in PPD seemed odd given all of the new rigs you were planning ;)

    The two new FX-8s?

    Those should be great--and we can have a competition--see if my i7-920 or your FX-8 is faster :toast:

    Well, then I probably stand no chance. I'm thinking of picking up a HD7850 for the i7-920, but I can really only afford one GPU at this point :ohwell:

    But I'm still very glad to hear it! :toast:

    I don't know where you buy your stuff but you pay the big price!

    You can get a HD 7850 1GB for 165$ here

    You can also get a 2GB version here and here!
