    Around Xmas till then i will use my OCZ PSU in the cruncher and the 480w that is in the P4 and use the 350w Antec in the P4 but leave it all stock.
    so here is how it will go
    main rig 700w OCZ GXM
    cruncher 1 480w Tt pp
    cruncher 2(p4) 350w Antec SP

    that is till i get the money to buy a new PSU for the main rig then it will be
    main 750w Antec TP(new)
    cruncher 1 700w OCZ
    cruncher 2 480w pp
    cruncher 3(P4 and 2 videos) 650w of some kind (going to try and replace the 24pin on SS PSU and see if it helps)

    what you think of this

    The price is very good man, looks sexy too! Can't really go wrong with Antec I would say.

    Yep, that's a very good PSU, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it if I had the money and needed that much power. As it is, I'll probably get a Corsair VX550 at some point (don't need more than that, would be able to run 3 8800GTs or a pair of GTS250s)

    You'd be amazed at how many cheap PSU's out there are extremely good.

    I feel i need the power that the Antec can give...As i would just feel better having the extra power when running the rig 24/7 for folding... BTW what watt PSU are you running?

    Currently I still have the 300w small-form-factor FSP held in with cable ties :rolleyes:
    Yep, a SFF PSU and m-ITX motherboard in a Rocketfish :eek:
    It's working fine, but I want something that doesn't have to be held in with cable ties :roll:

    So i think i can feel ok running a P4 with a 8800GT on a 350w smartpower...
    they have a 750TX for $110($90 after MIR) and a 650TX for $100($80 after MIR)
    750
    650

    i think those are great prices...Not sure if i want antec(its sexy/good reliability) or corsair(there reliable but not sexy)

    Were you suggesting those for me?
    The TX650 looks good, but so does the Antec Earthwatts 650(no mail-in rebate).

    Any advice for a reasonably cheap PSU that would power an OCed quad and 1 or 2 8800GTs/GTS250s? I don't have much (any currently) to spend, so the cheaper the better. Definitely has to be under $100, preferably less

    i was recommending them for you... The Antec that you have linked isn't bad but its not the best i would recommend the Antec you posted and the one i am considering or the corsair PSUs.
    or if for some reason the others aren't in stock or you find a really good deal this one
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817812001

    also price maybe low BUT epower is a good OEM that makes alot of the better PSUs (could someone give me some input on this PSU please? I may consider this one)

    I stopped doing the human proteome, it seems anything that uses that host or whatever gets compute errors on the i7 920, even at stock speeds (even though it's prime stable for hours, occt stable and ibt for hours).

    So for reference currently running:
    i7 920 @ 4ghz
    q9550 @ 3.6ghz
    q6600 @ 3.2ghz

    e7200 in process of being replaced with the x5030 w/ht setup.

    I edited my post, it is the human proteome for me as well. It's fine on the q9550 and q6600, but gives the i7 920 problems for some reason.

    I believe it only errors on x64, it runs great on the E6550, the P8600, the Pentium M and all of the P4s, but as soon as the Q9400 gets one (running Win7 x64) it errors. I've just de-selected it for now

    I have W7 64 Bit on my E6300 Rig, no problem for it I believe, but my i7 errors them. I just de-selected it too!

    My QX errors on them as well on Win7 x64. The 6400+ on x64 and the T7600 on OS X.5 do them fine. I deselected it on all machines just to be safe tho.

    I can't even begin to guess, tbh. I just don't know enough about code to guess.

    Uh, how do I know if I'm getting errors? To my knowledge, I have not had one since I stated this back in October.

    Further to the above, once you go there you can sort by type. I.E. "Errors"
