    I think running 2 GPU3 clients is cutting into my WCG production lately. So after I hit 7 million I think I will retire the 450GTS for a while. Save power and see how WCG production fares.

    Never switched, but still pulled down 6k for OCN combined between the 11th and 12th? Okay :laugh: I hope your second stay here is better than the first.

    Are using GPU2 console clients or the other one? No -advmethods for -bigadv, you will get regular SMP WU's if you put that flag.

    Probably then "C:\Users\Josh\Documents\F@H GPU Tracker\GPU-1" and "C"\Users\Josh\Documents\F@H GPU Tracker\GPU-2" but it should say (or you could just browse and look)

    I'm pretty sure the 2692s are some of the better ones ;)

    Okay sweet! Man i got these 8800's back at 1944 clocks and there shredding some project 353's right now! :eek: A TPF of 0:0:46 and PPD of 6.7k on each card! These 8800's still kick some butt! Doesn't look like they will be done in time though for the 9 p.m. update though :( Should have some work units done for the midnight update.

    Happily folding again for TPU :D

    You could say that i'm curious and I have a a surplus of cash in my Paypal:laugh:. The results I have seen look promising (like 49K ppd @ 4.9Ghz on -bigadv). I know results will vary, but I say what the heck...go for it.

    If only mcdonalds would call me back :laugh:

    Im wanting to build some dedicated rigs here soon if i can get a job. Basically all i need is cpu, ram, mobo, hdd and a cooler correct? I can run -bigadv on ubuntu right? Also i wouldn't need monitors for every rig either would i?

    Curiosity is what got me to sell my i7 920 too, and get a Sandy Bridge.

    HDD is optional (you could boot via network). I would recomend using one though. You can pick them up for 20 bucks or so.
    You'll need a PSU too. Unless you have a massive one (1000W or more), in which case there are workarounds to share PSus b/w systems.
    Yes, -bigadv can be run on ubuntu.
    No, monitors not needed.

    So after re-installing Widnows 7 I am back up and running and gained about 1.5k PPD after upgrading from Vista, on one of my download/ folding machines (pic coming soon at dinner ATM).

    Im not skilled enough to boot from network :eek:
    I can't believe i forgot about the PSU :laugh:
    Cool that will save me 30 bucks on operating systems :D
    So then just set them up to fold with monitors then use a dummy plug?


    How would i monitor if the clients are still running? Im guessing a VNC of some sort?

    Yep, VNC in Ubuntu is pretty easy. Or just switch over the monitor every now and then ;)

    Vnc works well to monitor.
    I don't need to use dummy plugs.
