    I'm still waiting for my points to start adding onto my profile, a few have been validated :-/

    I need to know how much more power I need to make 60k and figure out what I can do... I really don't want to run my Quad at home all night, it will make my room a nice roasting 85F....

    You can't with WCG, only F@H (SETI also runs on GPUs, but I'm having a hard time coming up with a bigger use of electricity)

    Believe me, when winter comes I'll be crunching all night, I have 7 windows and a door to the balcony in my room and my dad skimps on the heating, so it's crunch or freeze.

    Which do you think you'll have trouble with? The F@H side or the WCG side?

    mostly the F@H part, no nvidia card in the vicinity. WCG i can set on any computer.

    my 5850 is letting me down in F@H :shadedshu

    In milkyway@home i get 60,000-70,000 Boinc points per day :D

    EDIT: thats why i want to win that 9600gso ;)

    I think this topic could use a little bump.

    Good thinking, from the looks of it we need some more folders/crunchers!

    WOW it sooo much harder to get the 60k WCG boinc points than the 100k folding points if you have a Nvidia card with CUDA like my GTX275... been crunching for weeks now and am only at 20k Boinc points although i have an Intel Quad-Core... lol

    those ahead of me better watch out, already got 40k WCG and i'll get to 60k in about 10 days ;)

    once i complete 60k i'll have to run F@H on my cpu, still need 50k F@H points.

    WCG : 40k/60k
    F@H : 50k/100k

    i started on the 28th ;)

    So yeah. I'm going to pass 40k tonight. But I have a fear I won't make it to the 60k by the end of this thing.
    Or even by December :(

    I will admit that it is quite fun and exciting to try and meet this deadline by doing all I can

    So, to try to get some more PPD, I put another X2 4400+ at work running 64 bit Win7, using the 64 bit client, which is supposed to to get more PPD. Results? With 4 machines running 7 Athlon 64 cores yesterday? 529 points! For the day. I'd lol if it wasn't so sad.

    I had a 1.6ghz Pentium M, it got 160 PPD. So I'm not too worried :p
    I might be interested in the trade, I'll shoot you a PM if I decide to do it :toast:
    Your PPD will go up, I expect that you have a lot of WUs pending validation (to check, go to WCG --> My Grid --> Result Status --> (select Pending Validation)
