    My 7950 got flagged with like 50+ computation errors (all with 1 second runtime, freak driver bug?) yesterday when I was at work (using 13.2b3 drivers/Win7), so I backed down to 8 WUs and 1 thread each. GPU usage is still 98% so I'll see what my WU times are like and if it is better that way or not (probably not since everyone here is doing 10 lol)

    EDIT: New Gigabyte 7950 Windforce ETA Monday, used MSI 7970 reference ETA Wednesday. :D

    I would support your driver bug theory. If you download BOINC Stats and go here http://boincfaq.mundayweb.com/index.php?language=1&viewCat=3 to study the error numbers that BOINC Stat gives you (BOINC Manager gives you no error numbers) you might know more. And yes 7950 can do 10.

    7950+7970 = >200k PPD :toast:

    This may be a WCG bug with the WU's- I have seen a computation error pop up more often recently on all 3 of my GPU's (6870, 7870, and the 7770) and I'm using the 12.6 drivers on 3 different OS's (Vista, Win7 HPx64, and Win7 Prox64). I backed down one 7870 rig and it didn't change the occurrence of the error.

    Will need to keep a closer watch on this- Thx! :toast:

    I got the HD7850 today. I've moved the HD7930 to the Xeon and the HD7950 to the i7 (although it's only doing 8 WUs ATM). I'll be setting up the 7850 in the i3 tonight. I also sold the AMD X2 255 today, so I'm looking at buying an AMD FX8.

    Why an FX-8xxx? I don't mean to be negative about AMD, but I think my 8150 only got around 5000 PPD or something which gets whipped by an SB/IB i7 and with much lower power consumption.

    I can get everything I need for a 4GHz+ FX8 (CPU and motherboard) for just under $250. I'm not sure how I could do that w/ an i7.

    Fair enough. Too bad the deal didn't go through on the HPs or you probably could have been in i7 territory. :(

    Well, I'm cautiously optimistic that I can sell one or two of them tomorrow, so I then might be able to get a SB i7 setup :)

    Question?

    I can't quite remember, but how do I set wcg to download more jobs (threads in queue)? so that my comp can still do work in case my internet goes down. I know it's under Advanced > Preferences > but then what? :eek:

    Thanks-

    Everything is now up and running. The HD7850 is in the i3 running 5 WUs, the HD7930 is in the Xeon DP, and the HD7950 is in the i7-860. Hopefully I'll see about 60k PPD more :toast:

    In fact the minimum buffer is the important one according to SekeRob. I have set all mine to identical values.

    Well hopefully my numbers will be starting to come back up within this coming up week. I should have an Ivy Bridge system with my 7870, a Vishera FX-6300, and a little Phenom II 555 unlocked going full bore by the end of next week. :)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Looks like I should be buying my new gpu's and the fx cpu for my new main rig this week. I will step the memory up from 8gb to either 16 or 32 gb in the process. I have just about everything else for the build except those few things and one major piece of the puzzle that hasn't been released yet. Rig is running now with a 1055t and a 7850 but I want moar powah.

    Just got from a friend 2x 2gb Samsung PC10600 DDR3. I think I'll be looking for a small 1155 board + celeron G540/550. or something I can get for less than 100$, to make a small computer xD
