    Just need 1 7770 other system i`ll be pulling ram etc from has one. Have the evga ghz edition, would be nice to find some clocking info on it though rather then having to trial and error it.

    The "notices" tab of the BOINC client linked me to it, lol.

    That's a great upgrade! While I prefer to buy parts individually, it's a very solid deal that is being offered! :toast:
    Are you going to pick up a 2nd? And does EVGA make AMD GPUs now?



    My i7-920 is still blasting along--I can't wait to get the two more GPUs for it :D
    I think it could even be good for over 100k PPD--I'll have to see! :)

    That's actually not a terribly good deal. Yes, you can run AMD and nV GPUs simultaneously--just not with the app_info file unless you're willing to run two instances of BOINC at the same time.

    Sorry, dunno why I put EVGA, been talking about them a bit much lately maybe.. Meant Sapphire

    I'm itching to see what the 8350 can/will do when I can get another 7770 running in it. I think the i3 is what's holding me back atm. It's been a good little chip but a couple years old now.

    When you get the 100kppd I'll have to hit you up for some tricks as I still need a piece of pie one day lol

    The i3 should be fine. CPU speed has very little impact on GPU crunching time. From what I've seen, a 3GHz C2Q and my i7-2700k @ 4.4GHz will be nearly as good.

    And I should ultimately be well over 100k PPD. I hit 90k today--I think I should be able to do 150k or so with the two new GPUs. We'll have to see--but the future is bright at Aperture!

    But I'll help you in any way I can :)

    Interesting turn of events today. My dad approached me about upgrading my mom's PC (runs a 1100T and ASUS M4A89GTD Pro 890GX) which he would then use for himself and give me the free Dell Inspiron 530 desktop he's been using for a couple years. So, I am giving my mom my FX 8150, ASRock 990FX Extreme4, Seasonic X750 and GT 440 (this computer runs 24/7 and runs a RAID 5 so it needs a quality PSU) and my dad is getting my 7770 for his "new computer" a.k.a the 1100T system. In return, he just bought me a 3770K, ASRock Z77 Extreme 6, WD 750GB notebook HDD and 2*8 G.Skill Snipers, and is letting me crunch "when not in use" on both systems (I wasn't allowed to crunch on the 1100T system or the Dell).

    TL;DR: I just got an awesome PC upgrade AND a significant PPD increase in my near future. So excited right now.

    (BTW, my 2600K and Z68 Extreme4 Gen3, plus the Dell Inspiron 530 (running a C2D X6800, totally swapping that out) are going to move to the office to fill in the gap that the FX-8150 rig leaves.)

    Any ideas why this with the 7770 and all those other systems aren't really doing much for me? Are CPUs that antiquated for crunching?

    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 530 @ 2.93GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.9GHz
    Memory: 16384MB RAM
    Available OS Memory: 16312MB RAM

    Edit: Not doing much as in all that nets me 29k on a good day if I don't touch any of them.

    CPUs aren't that great. As in my i7s will do ~4.5-6.5k PPD each, but my HD7770 is doing 30k+. Are you running multiple WUs on the HD7770? If not, I strongly encourage it--it's nearly doubled the production from that rig (I have 3 running).

    And 29k still is pretty good--I was at 18k or so until the GPU WUs came out ;)

    Running 5 atm. 6 made any gains questionable. Just seems odd I guess a server farm and near a dozen machines. That was gold in earlier SETI days iirr. Well I guess at least before GPUs

    Even without .XML files, both my hope PC and work PC stopped crunching today. I fell something is going really wrong with the installs.

    5 WUs on the HD7770? That seems like a lot---the best config thus far seems to be 3....
    I'd say with all of those systems going you should have enough for about 40k PPD (properly configured). So I'm not terribly sure....

    It's pretty cool that CPU-Z doesn't even recognize it! :D
    Are you going to try OCing that?

    Same clock @ stock as the 8150 overclocked- going to leave it here for a few days to make sure all is well and then I'll give it a go @4.4Ghz

    Running at least 5C cooler and the AS5 still needs to break-in :toast:

    Newer cpuz version :p

    I got the i7 up and running at ~4.1ghz along with the gtx460, both crunching for the team.
    I'm trying to get the 8800GTS to FOLD since it can't crunch, but isn't working :banghead:

    Awesome, that's great progress! :toast:
    Do you have the 8800GTS in the same system? That could be causing issues...

    Scored a HIS factory OC'd HD7870 late last night for a good deal.

    I will have to reaaaaaaaaaaaly start reading the multiple WU's for video cards. LOL

    Should be a beast for crunching though. It should be here either Saturday or Monday. I guess it depends on the sellers ship time today.

    Any instructions and information help on getting multiple Wu's working would be most appreciated for sure.

    Thanks in advance,
    Dano

    Yes i do have it in the same system, since i can't get it to fold I am just using it as the display output so i don't get laggy video streaming when crunching on the 460.
    if i ever get the funds back to where i have 2 checks a month to play with, I will get another rig going which the 8800gts would be a temp. card.
    who knew missing nearly a week of work would put me behind for almost a month. Strange how 1 week can do that.
