    stanhemi, you will get around 2.1K with a 2900XT.

    Be aware that this babe is POWER HUNGRY, generates a lot of heat.

    Check the pic with the PPD average:

    Like mmaakk says, it will suck alot of juice. I bought 2 G80 8800GTS 320mb and they put out twice the heat and draw 40% more juice than the 9600GSO with similar ppd production. Sometimes a good deal is not really a good deal.:shadedshu

    I'm working on a little experiment and I need some input. What is the IP of the server your getting the majority of your WU's from and what is the WU#? This will only be visible on console clients. Thanks in advance guys:respect:

    The server IP is: 171.64.65.106 (384pt)
    WU number is: not sure what you want ? :confused:

    Nah, that's fine. It appears that 171.64.65.106 is handling 75% of the work assignments for Nvidia GPU2 currently. I have not seen a 353, 480, or 511pt WU in 2 days. Is anyone getting work from 171.67.108.11(353pt)or 171.64.65.20(480pt)???

    Buck, I'm sending you log files from my nVidia rigs. Lots of info. for you. Have fun!

    :)

    All my nvidia clients are folding 384pt. All my ATI are folding 548pt.

    How's the new rig doing?

    :confused:

    Just checked, and am being hit by 384s by 171.64.65.106 as well. At least my production is back up today! Turns out my brother's mobo may be dying and it keeps crashing. So there goes my dream of rig #2 for awhile, as I'll have to get him to upgrade to a p5q-pro. At least I'll finally be able to oc his e6850, hope that increases ppd a bit.

    stanhemi, just to let you know. I did install the new 185.20 driver on my Gamer Rig. (GTX 260)

    Looks good. My Fallout 3 is running better (what a great game!) :cool:

    I will report about some PPD improvement.

    Thanks a bunch, again!

    stanhemi, I was reading your sig "can't find SLI mobo". Just for your info, if the new rig will be just for folding, you don't need a SLI mobo. Whatever mobo chipset is good. With 2 PCIe slots of course.
    stanhemi says thanks.

    Ppd is the exact same as 180.84 for the new 185.20 driver. Now I've got to go see how games run with this!

    johnspack, Pay attention @ new feature called: Ambient Occlusion.

    Manage 3D Settings/Ambient Occlusion

    I'm using High.

    Suppose to add realism to scenes using ambient light.

    Don't worry about it. Isn't that big deal and the game runs slower.

    Here's my latest one, this is for my HD3870

    So most of mine are from 171.64.65.103 (some from 171.64.65.102)

    Project: 4753 = 477 points

    I keep getting the 384 pointers, ug, but at least I broke 17k today. I need to do 20k+ a day though, I need to assimilate more cards! And nice job oily_17, you might kick my butt now!!

    Thanks mmaakk. I've got the logs savedto my desktop. I don't want any Ninja's creeping out of the file and haxoring my rig.:laugh:I'm trying to get a feel for what the assignment server is doing. I've heard it uses your benchmarks to steer you to a given work unit.

    The new rig is running pretty good. It pulls more juice than the others 3 due to the X2 7750 cpu(@3.25ghz:)) and the 2-G80 8800gts's. It's like 470watts, which is too much for 24/7 usage. I'll prob dump the G80's and pick up a couple of 9600gso(96sp). I cleaned up the farm and installed the rigs on some wires racks to add some organization to the chaos i had going on.:laugh:

    So silly question: everyone with more than one built-for-folding-pc, what are you going to do with them after A: the contest is over (years to go but still) or B: decide to stop folding? lol I'm just folding with my day to day machine and I can't imagine having like 6 computers extra...

    I have considered this question every time i set up a new rig. If for some unknown reason I can no longer fold, I would do one of the following:

    1) Sell or donate parts to other folders to further the cause.

    2) Pool all my excess hardware together and build computers that I can donate to underprivileged children/family's(For x-mas i put together a decent rig for a local family that is down on their luck due to the economy).

    Think of how many kids faces I could put smiles on by donating the 16 8800gs/9600gso's that i have. Of course, they would currently have to be tortured by IGP to appreciate it.

    I saw buck's post about power consumption with those 8800GTS and thought I'd throw out some comparison numbers for anyone else. My machine:

    Opteron 170 @ 2.75GHz w/ 1.35V
    BFG 8800GT 705/1836/1990 (core/shader/mem)
    PNY 8800GT 705/1782/1990
    HD, fans, etc., etc.

    With my LCD monitor off and the rig left alone to fold I pull approx. 305 Watts. and get ~11000 PPD

    Like johnspack said, no PPD improvement with the new beta driver. The results are kind of limited 'cos all I get for days are 384pt WUs. Can't say anything about larger WUs.

    ;)

    Lightofhonor, about your "silly question".

    I use to have between 1 or 2 LAN Parties @ my place per month. So out of my 6 folding systems 5 are gaming rigs too.

    I think this way: "Folding PCs are people too!!! They deserve to have some fun in between long periods of hard folding work!" :laugh:
