    Sandy Bridge would be far cheaper than that. A 2600K combo would cost you about the same, plus you could sell your i7 920 combo to make back some the cash.

    Or i could sell my 920, add 350 bucks, and have a 970 that puts out 60k PPD+.

    Lucky, I used to have around 40 different trails around my house that were shared with moto riders, and even once got run off the trail by Jeremy McGrath, but development, and killed all but 3 of the trails, luckily 1 of which is the one I liked and cared about the most. :toast:

    Enjoy your weekend I wish I had the money to fix my bike, and the time to actually go biking.

    SORRY FOR OT

    Does now! After you drop an 83,000 point update! Would you please get a watt meter and let us know how much that Sandy rig is using?

    Would, but I have no idea where I can get one from (short of ordering it online). I doubt it consumes a lot considering its running a measly 8800GT at stock.

    They're fairly common these days with people going green. And good deparment store or a hardware store should have them.

    Not just going green, people attempting to save money while keeping up with their hobby (IMO green is just the next version of the .com bubble).

    Personally my bill is about 350 dollars more a month with 2 LAN's a month and and 7 24/7 folding rigs ( only 4 are mine (3 of which are also servers and download boxes) 3 are friends and family members who can't afford the stupid overpriced California electricity prices) to run 24/7.

    So knowing how much they use on a 24/7 average, let's me know how much I can spend on food and beer:roll:. :toast: :toast: :toast: :toast: :toast: And still save for more GPU's ! :rockout::rockout:

    Have been trying to convince others to join, as well as those whom's rigs I host, but 2 are EVGA stalwarts, and one is an [H]-tard ( IKR ). Also I as well am committed to other teams as well as this one.

    But as soon as I reach the point goals I committed to, my PPD will grow, perhaps to 100k +.

    There are 2 other teams 1 EVGA 1 [H] I am committed to a 2 million point mark, and 1 machine that is 30 k ppd, which I will never change as the team it is in was founded memory of a local LAN member whom passed away from cancer.

    Congrats on the new millionaires! TPU folders are starting to step up to the plate! I'm in the process of rma'ing a psu to hopefully put up a folding box 24/7 with 2 260s. Then I'll need a 2nd psu to fire up a 2nd box. But that's my next project....

    Awesome! You should get the folding stats thing for your sig. It's much easier to view your progress with that :)

    Also, can anyone help me figure out how to change the colors of mine? I'd like mine to be the same as it is now for the background just would rather have the font blue instead of the green.

    Would your parents let you fold or crunch on them though?

    No, but I have friends. I can outsource them to other friends with parents that don't care about the power bill. So I have a friend at school currently with an 8600GT, I'm sure he'd borrow a pair of 8800GTS 512s for a while :p
