    Oh that's clever! Do I just hook my HDMI cable up to the motherboard instead of the GPU? Now I can play Portal on my desktop without having to kill WCG :toast:



    Still no news from UPS on my motherboard :confused: :shadedshu :mad:

    I'm surprised that the NVidia cards are experiencing so much lag.... there's been posts about it all over the WCG forum.

    The Radeon cards seem to be doing fine ???

    Yes, just move the cable over from the GPU to the MB. After it switched I went into Display Properties and made sure it was only outputting to one display. Now I can watch movies, run Firefox, work in Office, and see zero stutter. Temp on the CPU went up maybe 1C if that. The GPU has continued to crunch without issues.

    I suppose the integrated GPU can handle Portal, but I have not run any 3D apps since moving over.

    My Radeons are quite noticeable effected. I can't watch video, and writing is a bit annoying with the delay.

    That being a low end desktop iGPU and a mid end laptop GPU certainly have something to say. :p

    Edit: And Stan's name is being held up by Da_vid.

    Thank you!
    It'll be fine, the HD3000 in my laptop handles Portal 2 fine, so the HD3000 in the desktop should as well :toast:
    A friend of Stan, da_vid, has taken up his old account :toast: :respect:

    Same here. Noticeable lag when typing(like right now:banghead:) and The GTX460 throws a pisser if I open a graphical web page. Points are great and I'm gonna bring a GTX275 online with another P-II x4 rig tonight. Just gotta move some things around to make room.

    Norton: Parts for the 2nd 4P rig are on their way... I will have my Cherry pie one way or another...;)

    That's awesome! So you have all 4 CPUs ordered, and the mobo/RAM? In that case, you should have no issue w/ #1. Although I shall do what I can to make your life difficult :p

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I am not experiencing the extreme lag others have. I get a brief flicker every now and then, but nothing major. I am using Cfed 6850's also. I have other issues that I need to check out and contend with that may take me from gpu crunching. I may have to take a seat in the bottom 20. or even lower down the rung. Oh well it was fun while it lasted. :toast:

    Is there any information on the kind of PPD the GPU's produce?

    All depends on the gpu dude. Like on my 6850's I am figuring around 10k per card per day. There are some getting 20k per gpu per day. Better the card the more ppd's you get.

    Nice. Does it favor AMD GPU's vs Nvidia? Got a 670 and a 560Ti I can throw onboard for this month.

    The only thing I have noticed is it seems to lag Nvidia systems a little more then Amd systems. But thats just my observation from the handful of people that have commented on it. I think the output is close to the same on either one (amd / Nvidia)

    I'd imagine you should get ~15-16k or so with the GTX560Ti, I'm pulling ~15k w/ my GTX470 and the two are roughly comparable cards. No idea about the GTX670--throw it on and let us know how it does! :toast:

    My numbers today are going to be low. My main cruncher just lost a HDD on my RAID-5 and I need to replace it ASAP. Might be a good opportunity to do some cleanup while I'm at it. Physically and internally. Windows needs to be re-installed and my stuff backed up anyways.

    Edit: I have a video. It's a funny one. It's clearly dead. xD

    you are just about as bad as me. LOL I do crap like plugging stuff in while the rig is running and stuff. :toast: There are people that will swear you will end the earth if you keep it up though. :roll:

    Sorry to hear about that :(

    At least you have a RAID array--on all of my rigs, if the HDD went out they'd be offline until I could find a replacement HDD. And then I'd have to get everything reinstalled and copied over :ohwell:

    So far, we're one update into the day and Free-DC is already showing us with nearly 600k points! :eek:

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Well guys my gpu crunching is at a end. It is totally screwing with my rig now. I and getting all kinds of weird crap going on and it only happens when crunching gpu units. So I am going to let the last few run through and stop them. And since I am going to take a huge points hit I am probably going to go ahead and shut down a couple of my crunchers and sell them off. So if anyone is interested in picking up some crunching hardware pm me.

    I'm really sorry to hear about that :banghead: :(

    What sort of things is it doing? (maybe we can help fix it?) And how much do you plan to sell off? :(
