    im not sure it will be worth it, but again, should be fun

    its a dualcore celly, 1.2ghz i think,

    afaik it can be overclocked a bit

    im thinking about throwing a used 260ish in it

    If that's an ATOM/ION board (and I think it is) then it's either a 1.6ghz+ single-core Atom w/ HT, or a dual core Atom w/ HT. Worth crunching on IMO

    Wow...I totally did not know that existed :eek:

    Oh, and you know, there's a PPD calculator for this ;)

    I'd estimate you'd be in the 400-450 PPD range @ 1.5ghz (probably closer to 400), the PentDCs I have @ school only estimate ~570 PPD each and they're @ 2ghz :ohwell:

    Yeah, that's why I'm not going to :p

    But if you want some help later on, just PM me, and we can go from there. I could switch over the i7 and maybe the laptop as well. The i7 will probably be on no more than ~10-12 hours a day now that I'm not almost entirely dependent on it for PPD (so now I can afford to have it off more, and my parents will be happier)

    hmm dunno what to chose, no cellys :p

    but yeah i really dont expect much more than that
    i see in review that they get it to around 1.8ghz, which is rather nice imo
    im gonna pick up a 450 tomorrow with 2x2gb memory, or 2x1gb

    and maybe a small ssd

    will do :D having trouble finding a place that has a decent m-itx case tomorrow :S

    Only 130k points and almost 2 months of runtime...no big deal :D
    [​IMG]

    Could very well be No1 in the team today! :eek:

    Oh, and this level of points/runtime should be reasonably easy to maintain :D

    EDIT @ Don: Just choose the closest CPU, in this case, a C2D Conroe. That's what I'm using for the PentDCs since cache doesn't really matter ;)

    Hey guys, we've got some shit going on in the Folding section about the Cap and Trade bill that is moving through the Senate right now, and I just wanted to make sure all you Crunchers were on board too.

    Folding Pie and Milestones!!

    Thanks, I'm sure loving it :D

    It sure shows what a lot of even midrange PCs will do, simply amazing IMO
    Well that's a load of BS. I'm going to write to the NC senators and implore them not to support it

    Yep, shows that you don't need high end rigs, just enough dedication. :toast:

    Sure thing :toast:

    My ancient Pentium M could accumulate almost 100k BOINC points a year, not a lot, but thoroughly respectable IMO

    do it for five years and that's 500k! 500k although achievable with not much effort for those with newer hardware is still a lot of points and a great milestone! :toast:

    True that....a lot of points there!

    Although my PentDC farm is probably capable of ~500k in about a month and a half :roll:
