    What about a core i7 980X with 6GB ram and dual 5970's? What kind of load does this put on an air-cooled card?

    I'm not sure what sort of PPD you'd get on the 5970s, but the i7 980x should do at least 30k PPD with the VMWare bigadv client. It does make the cards run hot, so you'll want to check the temps, but as long as they are reasonable it isn't an issue

    Thanks for the info. One card is watercooled, but the other is aircooled. If this second card is going to get too hot, it will ramp up the cooler and be loud: not sure I want that.

    I was gonna load this into an Xen Server Environment, aslong as I have an installation Iso, so I'll just load the Linux version I guess...Trying to get ESXi to work, but need compatible NICs first...

    How long will the rush last? Thinking about joining with my (very) limited power.

    EDIT: Pff, nevermind. Will be away the entire week. Good luck to you though.

    Bump only the shaders up to 1450 on the GTX260 and watch for a nice increase in PPD. Don't forget to switch the user name to ChimPowerUp on Tuesday.

    We will have a config file that you can swap for Tuesday. It will be very simple. As far as praising me, It's everyone like yourself that is folding that deserves my respect.

    Grabbing a new PSU tonight, I just don't think my Ultra X3 has the balls for what I'm asking of it. I'm thinking of getting a Revolution 1050, but I'm now wondering if its issues with the Classified EVGA x58s is fixed. It doesn't help that I can't seem to find any thread of exactly what the issue was.
