    Dammit, not again. Feel bad for Free-DC, they spend more time repairing their servers than they are up and running, because of us. :laugh:

    Thanks dude! I'm at 77k last 24 hours, which should be closer to where I'll end up. Hoping for 80k when all is said and done :D

    Still deciding about that 2nd HD7770....so tempting! :p
    I wouldn't say it's just because of us--but I do feel bad for whoever has to maintain it. They seem to have far more troubles than does BOINCStats

    I believe it's a one man show for Free-DC by a guy with username Bok. I mean, we're talking about probably one of the most detailed and useful DC stats-tracking sites being run as a hobby by a talented individual. He's been quite unlucky with downtime, but he's also received donations and help from others, like twilyth. :toast:

    EDIT. Found this with regards to the current problem: http://www.free-dc.org/forum/showthread.php?36392-stats-are-down&p=162280&viewfull=1#post162280

    I have PM'd him on his site in the past and never gotten a return.....Most likely because he doesn't know me from Adam.

    Does anyone know him enough to PM him? I would be more than happy to give him as much space on my web hosting free of charge! It never goes down.

    Sooooo if anyone knows him please, please, pm him regarding this.

    As I stated, I sent him a message several months ago about three different times and not once did I get a response. This would solve all the problems with that awesome site.

    Wow--that certainly looks problematic. It's amazing that he does all of the stats though with a single Core i7! :toast:

    Hah, I added a GTX 470 AND a GTX 465 and I'm still in the same spot. Hopefully the new WUs actually let my 7950 work at its full potential without the tweaks that do not seem to work on Windows 8.

    5xxx-7xxx series, though the extremely low end cards are not supported because they are too slow. The 7xxx cards reap the most benefits, though.

    I'd imagine soon you'd start to see the benefits. How fast is the GTX465 completing the WUs? Closer to a GTX470 (just over 3 minutes) or a GTX460 (~6 minutes)?
    And phenomenal cards they are. I'm still surprised how you managed nearly a 50% boost in PPD though--that's unreal! :eek:

    I went from 231K to 327K, which means a 96K improvement in going from a CPU + 1x Nvidia GPU to 4x ATI WU's.

    That's unreal though. I can't see how a HD7770 could get anything like that--1/3 of that easy, but still. I wonder if it's because of how BOINCStats measures points (usually they're off from Free-DC or the WCG site)
