    I assume that you will take advantage of the nice -5 C and test it a bit ;)

    Edit: Repost - the 925 is back. -advmethods will jump your 450 100 % if you pick one up. Not recommended for over night runs if your GPU is OC'ed to much.

    That's such a good deal I'll get one and figure out the power issues later. You've got PM.

    Edit: For anyone in the US, there's a GTX 275 CO-OP PhysX card on ebay right now that's going for $99 (it has a GTX 275 and a GTS 250 on the same PCB). It ends today 12/16 at 7:05PM eastern time. Likely to go up near the end though.

    woot! I'll receive my EVGA 470 with the aftermarket Zalman cooler today. This one is going to be the main folder in my folding rig. Definitely gonna play around and see how much it OCs.
    Also, if all goes well, my 480 should arrive by tomorrow.

    Hey guys, need some help making a decision. Okay well i'd like to either upgrade the main rig or build another cheap folding rig. Im getting about $100 bucks from my sister for christmas, she said she's just giving me cash, my parents i really don't even know most likely non computer stuff, my grandparents most likely black ops, and i asked for newegg gift card from my aunt and uncle.

    So i could probably have $150 to spend elsewhere as i could trade the newegg gift card if needed on some hardware. I could most likely get a 460 with that. Here's my other thought though. Im going to texas on the 30th and im going to be in dallas and houston. Their is a microcenter in both areas and i'd love to pick up a i7. Bigadv would be sweet!

    They have a i7 950 for $200 but do they have any good deals on mobo's? Id need to sell my current cpu mobo and ram and i could get about $220 for it all. So about $320 i could spend at MC. I could probably only get a cpu and mobo for that price so id have to hold off a bit before getting the rig all put back together. But with bigadv it would be worth it i think.

    Or i could take that $150 and just grab a gtx 460 for about 10-15k more ppd so id be at 25k-30k. But i would need a new power supply.Or i could sell the q6600 and grab the q9300 at micro center for 100 bucks or buy a q9550 for about 180. Or i could sell my current cards buy a 470 have about 50 left sell my current PSU for like 50 and then have 100 for a new psu.

    The choices are endless :( I don't just fold on the rig either. I do ALOT of gaming and take it to lans. Im not sure what to do? Give me some opinions please!

    Quick one boys.

    I start a 1298 and my GTX460 (875/1750/1350) claims 11,500 PPD then at 5% it drops to 5,510.9 PPD...

    Any idea?

    Driver has crashed to 2d clocks. Restart rig and drop back your O/C to 825/1650/1840 and up the volts slightly using MSI Afterburner. Make sure fan keeps the core under 65C.

    Still playing around with my new GTX 470. Comfortably OCs to 825 core, 1800 memory. At 850 core, it seems stable in Furmark, but crashes during 3D Mark Vantage (which is weird). I'm gonna set it at 850 and see if it folds without errors over the night.

    Whoa! Getting 16k PPD on my OC'ed EVGA GTX 470. GPU is running at Core 850Mhz, Memory 1850 Mhz @ 1.1 V. Temp steady at 56 deg. The Zalman V3000F rocks!

    Hmmm, so let's see,
    $170 - Gigabyte motherboard
    __63 - RAM (after MIR & shipping)
    _230 - i7-950 from MC (est. taxes and shipping)
    ____
    $496
    Could save $70 with the XFX motherboard....
    hmmm
