    I remember that those cards were costing me $90.00 from Newegg and they had a $40 rebate. I guess $50 net was not that bad for these cards about 4 years ago. Thanks for the trip down memory lane [Ion]!

    I'm always iffy about rebates, but that is a very solid price for what they are. I just picked up an 8800GT for $25 shipped--it's amazing to think of how much the price has fallen from when they first came out. Still one of my favorite cards--up there with the GTX460 in terms of awesomeness :)

    Agreed. I like how they are referring to GTX780 Titan as the second coming of 88xx series.

    Don't anyone get the wrong idea. I'm not thinking about 4P, just a thought about how close in cost a 4P and a GTX 780 will be.

    I'm setting up a system with an E6400 and a G92 8800GTS ATM. Once Windows is installed, I'll throw in a 9600GSO as well. I also have an AMD X2 that will host another 9600GSO :)

    EDIT: The Asus board is being difficult--the USB ports worked during the Windows install, but not once Windows was installed. I'm trying a fresh install now to see what it does :toast:

    EDIT2: The 8800GTS G92 and one of the 9600GSOs are folding now. I'm going to get pictures and set up the AMD X2 tomorrow--I'm just too tired now to continue.

    EDIT3: The 8800GTS and 9600GSO are actually folding now--the computer put itself to sleep last night. I'm installing Windows on the AMD X2 and another 9600GSO :toast:
    [​IMG]
    The E6400 (WCG), 8800GTS G92 and 9600GSO are on the left on an Asus P5B Deluxe. Surprisingly, despite being an Intel 965-based board, it claims to support the 45nm CPUs---I have an E7400 to test out that claim :toast:
    On the right is an AM2 ~2.3GHz that is a HP Compaq system pul. I'm a bit worried about the PSU it's running, but it only has to last two weeks and then I'll get another one.

    F150 Raptor, I noticed you just had an update of 371K. Was this a P8101 and if so, what's your TPF?

    It was a 8102, tpf hover at 10 minutes plus or minus a couple of seconds. I've had a couple though that were around 10 1/2 minutes on the 4p. It's weird though, some times it'll download the same wu I just finished and sent in. I've done 6 different wu's that are the same r/c/g back to back. The Sr-2 did one wu 3 times in a row. Got credit for every one that was done, so far between the 2 rigs I've had 27 straight 8102's. :D

    Damn:eek:! I have not seen a P8102 in 2 months...:cry:. Nevertheless, I'm glad you have had a great string of them!

    No, I'm running the same flags as you are. It just has to be the luck of the draw then.

    Just like I'm running all P762x's ATM. MAX PPD for me outside of the QRB's.

    They seem to be going around. I saw that Mx had them a few days before I got them. My only flag is beta. Looks like Jstn7477 and myself are the only ones with them currently.

    I guess I jinxed myself, back to the 6901 and 8101 wu's now. It was a good run though.

    I was hoping you would eclipse my daily PPD:D. You were coming pretty close....

    The two 9600GSOs and one 8800GTS are doing consistent output at this point. I have an 8800GT and 8800GS ready to go Monday or Tuesday when I get more open PCIe slots.

    [ION], do those still do about 4400 PPD for the 9600GSO's and 6000 PPD for the GTS, with a mild OC?

    I'm pulling about 5700 PPD from the G92 8800GTS. I'm getting ~3500 PPD per 9600GSO, although they're at stock ATM (no time to mess with them, and one of them is running on a PSU that I'm very suspicious of). Any memory of what sort of OCs are reasonable for these cards?

    My 8800GTS ran at 670/1890. 100% stable, and that's what counts for me. Stability and temps were/are my guides.

    Anyone know how a GTX 660 Folds? I've got another CL deal going... It's NOT the Ti model.
