    I downloaded them but I haven't tried them yet. I think what happens is we find a driver that works well, and after that we are afraid to mess with it anymore from fear of messing with stability. I can give them a go and check out how they roll, but it won't be til tomorrow.

    I just saw this so I'll check it out, thanks!

    Also, I have had crossfire enabled on my cards, for whenever I jump into BF3, but it's worth a shot to look into.

    Edit: Alas, the stuff you recommend is nice but only instore MC. I have nothing like that around :( thanks anyway :)

    Hmmm, just noticed that AMD is releasing the new 7790 shortly!!!

    Might be an awesome card to get for crunching. Seems to put out performance on par or close to the 7850's.

    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=181493

    Will be interesting to see what kind of price point they end up with on these cards. Hopefully it will be a bunch cheaper than the 7850's.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I know a 6850 can do around 10k ppd running just 1 wu per card.

    Isn't it 30-40k from 4 wu's? Xvi has that chart that could be someone to go off of.

    just yesterday, on the PPD, went from my i5 2500k and 1WU, 17-18k, to 21k with WU average. Can't wait in 7 days to see how much it did more for average.

    Thanks to the GPU :D

    yup, I'm on 7.0.56 x64

    8WU, and I think I would be able to do 10. 8WU at the same times, takes between 5 and 8 minutes to be done.

    Sure. My optimum is 10 for my 7950 and they take around 8-9 min/each with the odd fast one in between.

    nice!

    the only thing I see that sucks for BOINC, is that when youput GPU or CPU on standby, after a couple of times it comes back online. I was playing D3 when GPU went back.. mega ultra lag xD

    So I'm just closing BOINC when gaming. Anyway, I'll g et way more from GPU than CPU, which is a nice thing :D

    Use the exclusive applications manager. Find the EXEs of your games and add them to the list so BOINC automatically suspends for the duration the game/program is open for.

    The exceptions I have at the moment are Team Fortress 2, the Java runtime that Minecraft uses, PlanetSide 2 and Skyrim. Adding games can be time consuming so you may want to keep your preferences backed up somewhere.

    I think it's been around in BOINC for a decent while now, although I wouldn't swear to it.

    It has. It was buggy for me though. It sometimes would not recognize the application had ended.

    I had asked this question a bit ago, and yesterday I ran a bench on my ssd to check to see if it's still awesome.

    I compared that to almost a year ago while it was still new

    So I'm not too worried. That's with off and on crunching for 2.5 months and then 2 straight months of 24/7 crunching.

    Just figured I'd throw it out there, in case any one else was wondering. I know that's not a super definitive test, but it's good enough for me for now :toast:

    Hey I have this desktop here at work with two Quadro 4000 cards in SLI. Would they work in WCG? I do not see them on the list of non working cards but still there is a question.

    I guess they should work.

    I will try to find out why my HD5870m (FirePro M7820) isn't working for GPU calculation..

    BTW,Those GPU, WOW. The best I was doing with all my rigs, and 1 WU GPU was about 200k, now I'm over 400k on the WCG website..

    I'm sick at home today, so I thought I'd pop the 7770 I got back from Asus RMA. Guess what? It's a 550 Ti. Yes, an Nvidia card...

    Asus sent you a 550 Ti back when you RMA'd a HD 7770???
    That is totally bogus:(
