    Need an extra prayer/ shoutout for my mom. She got about 2/3rds through her treatment, but to continue, they needed to shove a needle in her, which just won't go. She's 73, and she's getting scared now. So am I. Let's find answers, god I need to keep crunching some how......

    That probably had a bit to do with bitcoin around late 2010.

    Looking at gpu prices... I found it funny that a 5830 seems to be going cheaper than a 5770.

    I am getting another HD 7970 early next week and may be looking to sell my three VisionTek 7770's.
    Will let you all know first if I do:)

    Or put them in the FDD bay. Surely it can be made to work ;)
    I'm really sorry to hear about that. Let us know if we can help. I'll keep crunching in her honor :respect:
    I'd be interested in a few for my DP setup :toast:

    EDIT: I sold $425 in computers today, so that sounds like I need another HD7950...what does the Team think? :)

    That's sad to hear. Well, now I have a reason to break out the old hammer and stick the 6950 into my file server. Best wishes to you and your family.

    I think you should buy two 7950's:slap:

    Got my new case today for the i7 2700K rig (currently on my tech station):

    Was supposed to get the Corsair H100i also as I ordered them at the same time from NewEgg. However it wasn't shipped out by UPS until yesterday so I have to wait until Monday to get it. Not happy with NewEgg as I bought them both on Jan. 1st. Sent them a scathing email complaining:(
    Oh well, I will switch the rig into the new case tonight and replace the cooler on Monday.

    Still waiting for my Accelero Xtreme 7970 and stuff. Doesn't help that UPS takes New Year's Eve/Day off and then Newegg took 2 more days to pack and ship my stuff which arrives next Tuesday.

    This is the only time I can think of in the last 8 years of using NewEgg where I have been disappointed in their shipping. It really sucks because I pay a pretty penny for things to be shipped to Alaska:(

    I know it is not easy, but please stay strong and give her the confidence & comfort she needs.. it helps if she knows her family is there to support always.. you might feel mentally/emotionally tired but keep your will power strong for her..
    Lets pray & hope God helps with the recovery soon..

    That is a nice looking case :) I'm sure it's going to look really good when it houses your rig :clap:

    Watch out guys :D

    I'm now back at school, so I have everything going. The i7 860 + 1 GTX460 (the other got sold in an AMD X2 yesterday), i7-2700k + 2xGTX470, i7-920 + 3xHD7770, i3 + HD7950, the 5 HPs, a Dell C2D, the i7 laptop, and two other C2Ds. My dual Xeon should be shipping Monday, and I'm likely purchasing a HD7850 tomorrow :)

    Yup, you're my main target ATM. I'm determined to reach top-10 and ahead of you :p

    Admittedly, mot of the threads aren't all that great (the 9 dual cores do maybe as much as a GTX470) but it's also ~30-35k from the other two i7s. So I should be at just shy of 200k most days. We'll see what I can get w/ the Xeon DP & a Radeon GPU for it :toast:

    The 6950 is finally in, and the lowest HDD is slightly crooked because I may not have hit the case with the hammer enough times.

    [​IMG]

    I'm getting all computation errors now though :/ anyone know why?
    Im running a Pentium D 3.04GHz (or something i dont remember)
    2gb ddr2
    6950 2gb
    windows home server 2011

    yes I installed the drivers for the 6950

    I'm glad you have it installed! You probably have computation errors because it tried to run the nV WUs with an ATI GPU--that won't work too well. I'd uninstall BOINC, delete the BOINC data folder, reinstall, and then try from there :)

    Check the Event Viewer (Ctrl+Shift+E) and see what it says. Is your card overclocked at all? Are the WUs failing immediately, or do they run for a bit first? What are your temperatures like?

    I can't see the entire text of the error--but I'm assuming that it says "Output file not found". If so, try resetting the project. Uninstalling/deleting should have been sufficient, but it can't hurt to try. Also, set it so that it uses the computer full-time and doesn't suspend if CPU usage exceeds a certain point--that will mess with the GPU.
