    sadly i don't have the money in hand right now... Not till the 25th. If they still have then for that price it will be mine.(i will place the order on Christmas :laugh:) Next choice is a corsair 650tx (i think) not sure what my 2nd choice will be yet :laugh:

    EDIT:the P4 is going to be down for the day. I am switching it to XP 64bit also. Win 7 64bit is too slow on that rig

    Thanks [Ion], Thats all I needed to know! I'll have my E5200 crunching in about an hour, the E6400 sometime today. The Pentium 4 rig, I need to connect to the internet somehow (I might have a long enough ethernet cable somewhere...).

    Actually, how well would a Q8400 go against an E8400 for crunching? Assume both at stock. I can get one soon, they're both the same price.

    The more cores the better for WCG. The Q will do much better than the E8400

    Loading PPD Estimator v. 0.97.......please wait :laugh::
    E8400: 6750 PPD (WCG), ~950 (BOINC)
    Q8400: 10650 PPD (WCG), ~1600 PPD (BOINC)

    Seriously, I should write a program that estimates the PPD based on clock speed and selected CPU type :)

    Just added my sister's Macbook with the Core 2 processor 2.4GHz to my account. Not expecting a huge output from it, but output will come from it none the less.

    @[Ion] your estimate was pretty accurate :)

    Awesome, thanks again Ion. Hopefully my new years upgrade will include a Q8400 or similar!

    My Core 2 Duo mobile gets ~750-800 PPD :toast:

    I think I will request that my title be "Master Estimator of the PPD" once I get the required 5K posts

    I'm most likely going to be taking an introductory programming class next semester, so I'll see what I can do (unfortunately, the program will likely only be text-based, but still)

    Good day guys! Just updatin you that the rig is still crunchin after 23 hours runnin straight!;) Havent seen my updated stats yet though at WCG site! Says it takes after 24 hours after first submission of results to show the updated stats. But no worries here, what matters most is I helped in my own small way!:roll: Crunching and going........!:rockout:


    Chicken Patty: Hope you got your well-deserved rest!

    It's a secret :roll::roll:
    Just kidding.
    I'm dusting off some of my dad's old C++ CS books, and I've already planned out how the program is going to go about estimating (not the code yet, just the general ideas behind it), so I'm going to try to get a text-based .exe of it out later this week :toast:

    How can I put that fancy little image you have on the bottom left of your signatures to promote WCG? (the WCG Cruncher one)

    crunch 100000 points, then enter your WCG account name under User CP -> Settings and Options-> edit Options
    it should be right there!;)

    you have to put your info in someplace in the U.CP(sorry don't remember where) and crunch so many points(60k or 100k something like that)

    EDIT:damn velvet beat me and with some details that i didn't remember :toast:
