    Is it a good idea to put 2 WUs on a 5870m (desktop 5770), or how about on a 6990m (desktop 6870).

    Is your computer's profile setup to only give HCC WU's?

    If not sure, log into your WCG account and check un the Device Manager option from the left menu. That will give a list of your machines and their profile. If you click on the profile next to your machine, make sure you have the GPU work enabled, and select only HCC from the project list.

    Take a look at the load % in the Catalyst drivers. If you're not using a good 90% of the GPU.. go for it.

    Check the WCG My Projects, and make sure GPU units are enabled. Check that it's use GPU always in your client as well.

    Why sit around and do nothing while your computer is crunching? Play some Counter Strike:GO!

    :)
    Just something that popped into my mind. I know some people are constantly ranting about the WCG forum badges, wanting to increase the PPD requirements. I think you should add more badges, like the ones folding has. Eg. Badge for 10 million+ points, Badge for crunching for over a year, Pie Badge(Showing your percentage of results if you're in the pie), etc.

    That's a great idea! :toast:
    It would also be cool to have a badge that had the flag of the country we're crunching for in the corner. It might be hard for W1zz to implement, but it would still be sweet! :toast:

    For somethings a static badge would just do. Like you just set it as an image once, and that's it.

    You can always personalize your signature and add a widget like Ion uses or post a pic of the WCG badges earned like I used to do.

    You have a lot of options....

    I am happy that TPU beating the pants out of everyone combined but crap, my room is getting hot.

    I am pumping heat from 3 laptops in this small space room, and Las Vegas isn't that cold yet.

    But to account for all six different options (five stars + no stars) * 206 sovereign states = 1236 different pictures :p

    But I'm sure something could be worked out--we just need to decide as a Team what we want :toast:
