    Yep they do everything is inside the monitor behind the screen.... no room for fans...
    But they belong to the state and have a 3 year warranty and are only about 7 months old:roll:
    So I don't really care if they break plus I keep all my info backed up at three different places... Just in case something does go wrong:eek:.....
    CP I'm a System administrator for a local state technical college one of three system admins. I take care of the e-mail servers, backup servers and soon the voip servers... Been there for alittle over 10 years now... Got 7 more and I can retire with full benefits :roll:
    Can't wait till the 7 years are up:roll:

    Hmm,

    I'm thinking of grabbing a GTX260 locally. However, for now I cannot put it in my 2nd rig because of the 295 using the 2nd slot to fit the tubing around my cooler. I can always use the other side of the block though. A 260 should be about another 8k ppd right?

    I think the GTX 260 c216 I had way back when was a little closer to 7.5kPPD.

    Depends on the work unit. My overclocked 260 gets around 8k on a 353 point work unit, but there are other work units that give 6.8k pdd :/

    Looks like my wireless connection for 10 clients was down for about 12 hrs, so yesterday was weak for me. I should be back up to 100k by tonight and I will have a slow -bigadv dumping on Sunday. I should have my 2nd -bigadv rig up and running in 2 weeks. Keep up the great work guys!!!!

    Look for a GT240 for under $60 after MIR, and there are some with single slot coolers.
