    Another question, is there an option for WCG to use the GPU?
    The work pc's have onboard, but my home rig GPU can contribute.

    Not at the moment I'm afraid. BOINC as a program supports GPU, but the WCG project is optimized for CPU only.

    If you laptop does in fact have the Q9450, it would be good for close to ~1700 PPD, so you may want to consider running WCG on it as well. I get ~750 PPD out of my laptop with a 2.4ghz C2D

    As kiex said BP, for the GPU you can use GPU GRID. But it's a different program.

    BP have you checked out the essentials thread? It has everything you need or need to know in there. I am on the phone, hopefully somebody can link you if not just look in the WCG sub forum, can't miss it.

    I think I won't get shot for saying this, but alot of us use our GPUs for folding while our CPUs crunch. Check out http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=13038

    And welcome.:toast:

    For some reason I thought BP new about folding that's why I didn't mention anything. But I don't know where I got that though from :(

    Any plans of OCing?

    I'll turn the OC up on my X4 955 for a couple days to lessen the impact of the downtime :toast:

    That looks really cool. Before joining this forum never thought of getting color coordinated parts, but I've been converted. All black looks ace!

    Of course there is some oc in the works. Nice that they made mounting points on the mb for me to use 775 mountings on my Xiggy S1283. Of course later on I may look at some serious cooling. Best option locally is the Corsair H50. And it's also black, which will look most tasty.:rockout:
