    Follow the instructions in the OP here with the app_info file from here. It's the one I'm using with success on the HD7770 for ~2x the PPD :)

    I just noticed that the clocks on my cards went back to stock; I must have rebooted at some point and didn't reapply in MSIab. So now they're back with the mild overclock @1000; we are going to need all the firepower we can get. :D

    It said I had 3 days of runtime in one day yesterday, how does that work?
    Also been running 24/7 for 40 days now :D
    thinking of beginning to overclock (got a 1055T), but it hasn't gone well in the past for me

    Very easy. Each CPU thread can get up to one day of runtime a day (by running full force). Thus, your AMD X6 can (theoretically) do up to 6 days of runtime a day. In actuality, it will be a bit lower (due to other things that have to run on the computer). In this way, I pull down a bit over a month of runtime a day (with my 38 threads).

    So I'm looking to build a low-end ITX gaming system in the Elite 120 from sneekypeet and I'm trying to finalize what to get. For $90 from Newegg, I can get a BIOSTAR board with a 1.1GHz Sandy Bridge Celeron and 8GB of free DDR3. My other alternative is a Pentium DC ~3GHz, which would be ~$75, and then a $85 Asus motherboard. I think I'll go with this--the CPU would be enormously faster, even if it is more expensive. I'm trying to secure an i5-2500k--Microcenter has them on sale for $100 ATM, but I'd have to find someone who could ship me one (the nearest Microcenter for me is about 7 hours). Either way, I'd probably use an 8800GTS G92 or similar--not great, but good enough for a system that I can take and use with friends. The thought is I'll also throw a 1TB HDD in it and use it for storing stuff as well. I'll keep you guys posted on what I decide :)

    Try a Biostar A880GZ with a PII Quad (or FX-4100/6100) and a 6670 or 7770 gpu- those pieces will make a nice little game box :cool:

    The problem is, those are both uATX boards--the case is an ITX. And I think an ITX system would be fun--if I just wanted uATX, I'd get a Fractal Desin Core 1000 and stuff the i7-860 in it. With the Elite 120, the system would be half the size.

    I may also just steal one of the HD7770s from the i7-920--it would be cheaper than buying an 8800GTS G92 (although I would lose out on the folding capability).

    Thanks though :)

    It is ordered at ncix but I didn't receive an order confirmation yet (wouldn't work in Denmark being so slow).

    That's what I figure I'll do. It seems like it would be worth it vs a PentDC.

    EDIT:
    It's worth it--I couldn't get it to work until I followed those ;)
