    Find a good deal on a 7950 - they can do +80k PPD (yes a 7970 will do 95k PPD but at a higher cost). Still not cold enough to install my 7770s (22k on their own, each).

    There just aren't any. This from The Tech Report:
    There's a 7950 on CL right now for $375!

    Price/availability on Radeons has gone nuts lately :twitch:

    FYI- will be trying a bit of F@H action on one of my 7870's starting this weekend. Thinking it will match the GTX 580's 40k or so output with half the heat and power (or less) :)

    *UPDATE- started up the 7870 last night- It's running a Core 17 8900 job @ 6m23s for 22,470 pts/55k ppd.

    That's at least 25% better than I was getting with the GTX 580! Pretty darn good for a 150w card and the temps are stable at 52C! :rockout:

    The 7000 series (even the 7770) and the newer additions are doing well on the 17 FahCore. I saw 180k PPD for the 290X somewhere on the interweb yesterday.

    The only thing I miss is the 580 did a great job of taking the chill out of my home office this time of year :p

    Get a 290X. I hear that it only takes two to heat up a whole house ;)

    No a 8900 job in 100 x 6:23 min ;) FahControl calculate the frame time and the frame time is what is used in this : http://www.linuxforge.net/bonuscalc2.php

    I'm liking the efficiency of the stream processors on the Pitcairn chip in the 7870 :)

    I'm getting a pretty consistent 22k points (6min30sec) on the Core 17-8900 job with the 7870 (1280 SP's) vs around 28k points (4min0sec) with the 7970 (2048 SP's).

    Temps on the 7870 are outstanding... still at 52C on the core with a budget stock single fan cooler* and the entire card is only warm to the touch. :pimp:

    *this is the card:

    I get around 95k @ 1040 MHz. A solid OC could get 120k, after QRB. 4:00 is 105k PPD.

    I meant per 8900 job/wu- my 7970 gets just under/over 100k ppd and the 7870 get around 50k ppd
