    Sounds like a good deal here!

    Crunching... I haven't started that yet... Going to have to see what I can switch around here... For now I have CPU's doing folding, like 6 of them...

    How many points can that GTX260 crank out 24/7?

    I dont get the meaning of this sentence:
    Eligible points must be achieved under a user name Crunching for Team#22175 and Folding for Team#50711 only.

    Should i name myself "Crunching for Team#22175 Laurijan" and crunch for team 22175 and "Folding for Team#50711 Laurijan" and fold for team 50711?

    No he just means under a user name that is crunching for that team.
    So whatever your user name is, that is fine.

    As for the question of names, if you have a name that is different between the two projects you can either:
    - start a folding / crunching name discrepancy thread where everyone posts up who they are in the projects
    - maybe PM one of the contest head honchos with the info so they can make the link and note you to be elligible

    And as for the names, I believe there is a place in your user options to enter your F@H and WCG username. I'm sure the people administrating the contest are using the names entered there.

    Use your current one. We recorded the points totals b/4 the contest started, so no name change needed.
    Laurijan says thanks.

    F@H has always been a requirement. 100k F@H points and 60k BOINC points.

    BOINC points

    Hi,

    When this contest started, I asked how many points I could expect from my X2 4400 and was pointed to this chart, which says that I should see upwards of 600 PPD. With all my systems, I should have the raw ability to get 1500 PPD, so averaging 1000PPD should be no problem, or so I thought. I'm unable to run my X2 4400 system 24/7 and I use it for other things like Internet and e-mail during the 17 hours or so that I have it on and I'm getting 155PPD at 80%! I also have a 4000+ running 24/7 and it is used almost exclusively for WCG/Folding and at 90% (it's hurting Folding points) it's getting 107 PPD. Finally, I have a FX-60 running 24/7 at 80% which is used from 4-6 hours per day for other things and it's getting 205 PPD. Total PPD with 5 Athlon 64 cores = 491. 60,000/491=122 days. All systems S939, stock frequencies, Win XP Pro. To say that I'm stunned at the amount of points that I'm getting would be an understatement.
    So what am I saying?
    100,000 points Folding is easy. I believe that a 3870 or an 8600GT would do enough for the Folding part of the contest.
    60,000 points BOINC? Well, you draw your own conclusions. I don't even think the prize for this contest could make 60,000 points in 2 months, maybe with some extreme overcloking! I think this fails the stated goal:
    Let me make this clear. I'm not asking for donated points, as a matter of fact I'd be kinda ticked if someone did. I want to earn it myself.
    I may solve my own problems with this little PII X4 805 sitting here.:p

    The average is based from the time you started crunching, and it will eventually pick up. It's a bit more deceptive than F@H as the F@H average is only on the last 7 days, not from user creation. You're actually earning closer to 700-900 PPD as per Free-DC.

    Having said that, your values themselves seem low still seeming how I was pulling 550ish from my E4500 at stock clocks.


    EDIT: I should also note, you've earned 1134 so far today. Don't forget, the WUs can take days to validate too.
