    I really hope they get their server for the old GPU WUs going again--I have a pair of 9600GSOs, a pair of 8800gtS, and an 8800GTS G92 currently sitting idle :(

    If your running -bigadv, add the "-bigbeta" flag. There is a new WU (P8103) that is roughly the same as P8102. I believe you need "-bigbeta" to get it. I've gotten 2 since adding the flag.:rockout:

    Cool! As per our previous discussion, a 3770k at any sane speed is too slow for bigadv, right?

    With the core hack(don't know if it's still viable), a 3770K heavily overclocked will work, but barely make the deadline. Gotta see if the core hack still works.

    Well, I only have mine running at 4GHz since it's on the stock cooler ATM--I need to pick up my spare H50 from home before I push it harder.

    Folder 01 is ready to go- I put the GTX 670 I just picked up into my 880G/1045T rigs (Julia in my sig). I have it crunching ATM (CPU and GPU) but intend to switch it over to F@H right after the current challenge is done (3/8)

    Any issues that I need to worry about before starting it up to fold?

    I'm a complete noob with F@H so any advice or helpful links would be greatly appreciated! :toast:

    When you install the FAH client, it will try to use both the CPU and GPU--you'll then need to go to the Advanced Control and delete the CPU client ;)

    The rig is running VistaHP 64 - any issues with that OS and F@H?

    Should be OK--I have Win7 on everything, but I think the client is OK on WinXP or later.

    Don't expect much out of it (maybe 15-20K points because Kepler lacks a lot of the GPGPU grunt that Fermi had), but just follow Ion's advice and you should have no issues. :)

    Yeah, it's kinda sad, as my GTX550TI gets just over 15k PPD at stock speeds :ohwell:

    Certainly! :toast:

    I'm just bringing the last two GPUs from NastyHabits online. Once that is done, I'll have two 8800GTs, two 9600GSOs, an 8800GTS 512, and an 8800GS going. I may experiment with the GT520 in my Gateway, but probably not--this is going to be my gaming system :toast:

    You guys?
    Ah, that's more like it. YOU guys, Buck and F150, are going nuts. Texbill has bumped up, but its you two who are the reason for the big bump.

    FYI: I'm finally upgrading my PC. What you read in my system specs is no lie. I've put my money into Folding GPU's, but not into my own system. Two weekends ago, I took my system outside and blew it out only to find a leaking cap. A week later, the fan on the ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro died.(what a piece of junk-it's what, only 7 or 8 years old:rolleyes:) I'd been working on figuring out what I wanted to do for an upgrade and had plans for a 3770 system but I ran across a deal on CL (again:p) of a guy selling his problem child for cheap. 2600k, GA-P67A-UD4-B3, 8GB, 120GB SSD, H80, Antec 300, TPQ-1000 PSU, and (you knew this was coming, didn't you:rolleyes:) 2 Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti's! The system would only boot cycle, so the motherboard is off to RMA. I, of course, put those Ti's to work, so I currently have 5 Ti's Folding along with 1 460/768. So, come Chimp time, I should have 5 Ti's and 3 460's Folding, which should be somewhere around 180,000 PPD. Might even be persuaded to SMP on the 2600K if 200,000 PPD is within reach. FYI, I will be selling some cards after Chimp.

    On another note, it's warm here. Too warm to keep Folding full throttle. I have all but one of my clients on "finish", so my production will be down until the mercury goes back down.

    LOL Bruce, I thought you just never edited your specs. Hope everything works out with the 2600K(still a great processor today) and look forward to you ramping up production for the CC!

    Good job! I'd like to announce that I got my old PC (#2 in my sig) working again, so I will be back folding full time with my 2 x 460 setup real soon. I know I'm just a small time player these days, but hey, it all helps! Also, I will fire the PC in my sig for folding come Chimp time. One i7 930 -bigadv plus my 2 460's should help with the Chimp Challenge. Damn thing pushes me into poverty when overclocked :shadedshu, but once a year I can deal with. :rockout:
