    I have two more systems going on the Grid--an E8400 and a SU9600--both C2Ds, one at 3.0 and the other at 1.6. Both will crunch until they sell :toast:

    Just went quickly through W1zzard's Sapphire 7790 review. Impressive. Most impressive...

    Anyone picking one up?

    We'll see- best to see what this card does to the prices of the 7770/7850 first ;)

    FYI- I use an estimate of 5k to 5.5k BOINC points per 100 stream processors for max crunching output. This card should do 45-50k ppd (card has 896 SP's) :)

    I still rather have a 7870 (2 in fact).

    The only selling point of this card over any other competing card it seems is it's power consumption (and noise levels).

    But just like you, I'll have to be patient - hopefully not too patient cuz I'm itching to upgrade my PC...

    I get my Sapphire HD 6950's back from rma next week. Looking to sell them and go to a single card. I Like that Sapphire HD 7970, but not sure if I will have a problem with bottlenecking........OR I could get a 3rd 6950???

    I hear you Norton. I was about to order a 7850. Waiting for possible price change. (Please, please go down.)

    The power bill came here today... it doubled :( I think I'm just going to go with 2 crunchers. I was planning to run a pure GPU cruncher (P G645 with a pair of 7770s) and two PII X6 crunchers but in light of this I think that I'll install a 7770 to each of the X6s. Shouldn't be that much of a drop, maybe 1.5K less per day.

    I'll run that this month an see if I can add a third cruncher down the line. Also getting a pair of Earthwatts 380 is top priority now.

    Lesson #2 of crunching, the power bill!!!... lesson #1 is the BOINC vs WCG point thingy btw ;)

    Running economically long term is a definite goal and I think you're off to a good start. More efficient PSU's are certainly a plus. :cool:

    I find crunching slightly easier on power usage than folding. And that's with my cpu assisting in crunching, and not doing much in folding....

    Anyone know why with the newest clients I can't crunch my 260 with my 480 anymore?

    Perhaps... and it would be thanks to a boost from your 7770! :toast:

    I'm at about 255k for the day so far :)

    Just a short bit ago, it would secure 1st place, but now with [Ion]'s 600k+ 1st place, you need a fleet of AMD gpus :eek:
