    Okay, okay. :p If you're looking for someone to give you the go ahead for that SSD that you seem to want so much, then who am I to stand in your way? Go ahead. It can't hurt. :) Moving data to and from storage faster will obviously help, but how much is anyone's guess. Although, I would not be surprised if a thorough scouring of the Folding forums out there would turn up someone who's tried it and posted the results.

    lol the SSD you speak of is already in my system Intel 160GB G2:cool:

    i'm on the folding forum now but all of this is new to me and there is so much information to gather.

    Like if I go the VM route which version of linux should i run??

    If Hyper V better than VM Ware etc etc.

    How much ram should I allocate to the VM etc

    I saw one a few days ago comparing us against the other competing forums, we were ranked 7 I think at the time. Does anyone know where this ranking is?

    EDIT: Thanks Oily, found it!

    Damn! I'll be switching everything over tonight. Folding pie might be less interesting for a few days all things considered. :laugh:

    I added a OCed 8600GT to the mix today. May not be a big hitter but it still puts out some points for the team

    EDIT:i can't wait to get the seasonic PSU so i can run the 8800GT along with the i7. my rig can put out over 20k ppd when folding on GPU and CPU (both OCed) but right now it is limited to CPU only (still ~15-16k ppd)

    I ran an 8600GTS a while back, when it folded reliably (which was rare, admittedly), it did ~1600 PPD :toast:

    So far my 4890 is doing 3500 PPD with no cpu client running. I hope they release the gpu 3 client soon as gpu2 is only using like 320 shaders out of the 800 available.

    The points sure did add up fast. Something tells me that we aren't going to need that long to get 20mill. maybe even less then 20 days once everyone gets switched over :eek:

    I would think that for quads it would be the same as is used on the i7(i know i7 is still a quad)

    I would use the "MPICH" client :cool:

    I'm using the MPICH client, but the cpu is killing my GPUs.

    PII 955
    Evga 275 co-op
    Evga 275

    Intel Q9450
    2x PNY 260
    Sparkle 275

    Running vista 32 bit on both systems. Settings please.:confused:

    Under advanced settings for priority(-configonly flag), set the CPU to Idle and the GPU's to Low. Use Prifinity II to assign the CPU/GPU's to all core's on the processor.

    Alright, that seems somewhat sufficient. I suppose I should actually lower the core clock and only boost the shaders on all my 9600s and GTX260s. Should be able to squeeze out some more punch that way.

    D.Law has been our top cruncher (WCG) for the last couple months:toast:

    He has a serious arsenal of i7 920's and an i7 980x:respect:

    Also he seems to be a good guy and has many more rigs then just the 920's and 980x
