    Edit: It's running 1GB of RAM and has the awesome ATi 9000igp!

    Anyway, thanks for the links and comments! The auto-report config file is dope!

    I run the i7 24/7 and hardly use it. The p4ht runs 24/7 and is rare it gets used same for the other p4. Also the phenom 9100e runs 24/7 and sees little use and i also have the 9500 turning in results every so often

    That's sure nicer than the dedicated laptop I have crunching (PentM 1.4ghz)
    Awesome, keep us posted! :rockout:

    What do you use daily?

    Never fear, I have more coming :laugh:

    Definitely better now, I'd say that's a reasonable figure, it's about what my laptop can do PPD-wise when lightly used

    Yeah...there'd be no way I could crunch 100k in 28 running days with my rig and lappy :p

    I can't wait to have some sort of job to start building another rig. Once I do, I'm going to turn "The Spot" into a dedicated cruncher.

    Don't get me wrong though, I like a little exclusivity to the badge, but 100k/28days excluded a lot of people who are really dedicated to the team. I think 75k/28days would be great.

    That would be cool :)

    It's hard to beat a PhII X6 1055T or an i7 860 in terms of PPD/$ :toast:

    I still think that 75k/28days is too much, because that rules out members just folding on a C2Q or PhII X4 or even an X6 or i7 only part of the time. Not everyone has an i7 that they can leave going 24/7 ;)

    50K a month like with the TPU WCG Contest is something most can do on their own if they dedicate themselves to it.. took ages to decide that number lol

    Exclusivity is nice because it makes some people push their systems. I count myself among those that want to make a difference, badge or no badge. Recognition is definitely nice though ;)

    Are they all crunching 24/7 and 100% CPU load? Cause you should be around ~4-4.3k w/ that ;)

    Just, to check, are they all set to use 100% CPU and have the "while processor usage is less than" percentage set to 0?

    EDIT: lol didn't see the updates from the two above. but definitely look at the usage thing because I was loosing 1K PPD on an i7 to that setting
