    Ug, it's killing me. I'm waiting for the first of my gtx285s to arrive. I've already got payment for the 2nd one sent to paypal. As soon as I get the first one, I downflash one of my 260s, and daddy goes for 5 mil! Waited a long time for this....

    Ok glad to hear it! I feared for the worst, that somehow my computer had gone offline.

    So, I just started folding for the night, and noticed I'm getting unusually low scores for my SMP. I used to earlier get about 4.5k. Is it something to do with the WU?

    Is anyone still having trouble returning the 6800's? Seems they will have the servers "on and off" this week, so it looks like this week is a bad one to fold on. I lost another 3k points cause the servers are down!

    No, these two issues are unrelated. The 15th the receiving server for 6800 WU's had some issues. On the 16th (today) many servers will have planned issues.

    GTX460 installed. 11,000PPD estimated :)

    Uses 100w less than 2x 8800GTS 640mb and produces 4,000 PPD more. Is also quieter on 75% fan.

    Getting low PPD on CPU (SMP), and no WU on GPU. Stopped folding for the day.

    I'm guessing it has something to do with their servers.

    Is there anyone out there in folding land that has an 8800GS or 9600GSO (96 shader version) they are looking to sell? Thanks to work, I have an open slot waiting for abuse.

    I can get you a 9800 GX2 for about 60+shipping if interested (if in the US), in a few days. For folding, thats about 10k PPD

    Yeah. There are four available. I'm definitely grabbing one. Seeing if there are others here who'd be interested. I'd take 2 myself, but my folding rig has only 2 PCI-E slots.
    BuckNasty is down for one too. Still got two available.

    I have one, but it heats up my room way too much so I replaces it with cooler card. Lucky me a member sent me a 295 to fold on and it's water cooled so I was happy LOL.

    Yeah that seems to happen to me as well, I'm 100% sure it's the WU's, as my Core 2 Q9650 will do 5-6 k PPD normally but only 3,100 ATM.

    Nope I have been returning them fine.

    When do you plan on having them available? I'll have to think about this one for an hour or so, I'm hoping on not having to buy a new PSU and vid card (which would prob have to happen for the 9800GX2). I could put the 9800GX2 in my main rig with a 8800GT (powered by PC P&C 750W supply), move one 8800GT to my other rig with dual 8800GS cards (replace one of the 8800GS), and finally moving the 8800GS to the work comp.

    Your new board that's a X58A-UD3R right? It's still cold so let's have some bench. I will open my window tomorrow morning (after my -bigadv) and see if I can go a bit higher then my current folding setting (193x21).

    925 pointers are back

    I lurked around and found out that the nice (for the 450's) 925 is back. Got one when I added -advmethods.
