    it will help makeup for the loss of the other X2 but points will still be lower..
    I am thinking about grabbing a X2 240 and putting that in the rig when i get it running or buying a cheap C2D and have it crunching in the other ECS board i have (630i)

    try to get you an e5200 or e3200/300. if you want sli with it
    otherwise, you will need a crossfire board and the 240... is the asrock, CP is sending to you, dual slot?

    I am going to setup another cruncher with the C2D
    the asrock board is dual slot(790gx) and it will be paired up the the 240 and SLI 8800GTs

    Sounds good! So how many X2s and C2Ds would you have crunching at that point?
    Currently I'm at 1 C2Q, 2 C2Ds, and a bunch of single core P4s and PMs

    Wow, awesome! The E1500 should be able to get ~1.5ghz without too much trouble. The Athlon II, I'm not sure about, but maybe 3.6?

    BTW, I've been having issues with my rig randomly rebooting sometimes, if I disable either WCG or F@H it fixes it, so I'm guessing the 300w PSU isn't good enough for an 8800GT + Q9400 :(
    Sounds like I'll need a new PSU soon-ish :ohwell:
    I don't have any spares, but I'll see if I can pull the VX450 out of my parent's computer long enough to test it out. If that's the problem, I'll get a Corsair CX400w or another sub-$65 PSU in January with some of the money I'm likely to get for Christmas

    i had problems with a 350w PSU running a X2 4850e(45w chip) and a 8800GT when i had it folding/crunching 24/7... can you undervolt your CPU any?

    Nope, the Zotac board doesn't support undervolting or underclocking (it won't even let me drop the multiplier down, otherwise I'd run it at 6x for now). I'll see about trying it out with the VX450 to see if that fixes things

    i just kept dropping hints about how my CPU was bottlenecking my GPUs and that i needed more crunching power.. Had to keep it up for about 2 weeks..I was trying for a X4 620 and a Q8200 but he wouldn't give in on that so i settled for the x2 240 and E1500 :p
