    Breast cancer, inoperable in part because of her age. Doctor gave her 12months 2 years ago. She fought hard and was normal as could be until about a week ago. Cancer is god awful.

    I'm sorry. We've lost 2 dogs, 1 of which to cancer, so I know how hard it is :( :cry:

    But it seems like, given what the doctor said, she actually did pretty well :eek:

    If anyone's curious, here's tracking for the GTS450: NE Tracking. Still no info, so I doubt that it will be here before Thursday at the absolute earliest, maybe even Friday :(

    It seems like you need +30K PPD to be in the pie these days. I like pie so an W3670 (6 core, 3.2 GHz) is going to replace my i7-920 and a 450 is to replace a 9800 GTX. After my next job I will find them a new home.

    Edit: On second thought the GPU3 is CPU hungry, so the 9800 will be replaced by my noisy 260 and the 450 goes into my daily rig provided it runs quiet (MSI Cyclone, the 460 I have already is acceptable)
    Second edit: The W3670 is not listed in the Supported CPU for my UD7 I just found out. Let´s hope it will work anyway or I have to re-think my expantion plans - dual XEON sounds nice too :)

    Its crazy that a year or so ago 15k-22k would get you 8-10th place in daily production. Team is growing and expanding quickly.

    On a weather related note, its WARM right now. Im letting my rig idle for the today and will fire it back up tonight.

    The GTS450 isn't much better than a 9800GTX.

    I'd get at least a GTX460 if you can afford it ;)

    And the MSI Cyclone is dead quiet, at least according to TPU's review.

    My i7 rigs seems to have gone offline for some reason while I was at school, I'm guessing it was probably down ~2-3 hours :(

    I'm very happy with my MSI Cyclone GTX460 but I was looking for a little less power consumption and noise since the rig sits under my work table. I was under the impression that the 450's perform well on the new 912/925 pointers. You might be right that there will be a very small gain on the other WU´s.

    I have the same problem - as soon as I leave the home something happens to my i7 rig. I blame the dog :laugh:

    I think that it's more likely that it's my parents :p

    On the 9xx PT WUs, a GTX460 and a GTS450 are about the same, but on the 6xx PT ones at least, the GTX460 gets anywhere from 33-50% better PPD than the 450
    Wow!

    When was that?
