    Weird, mine states in the about window that I run the x86_64 client. I run a later version however.

    And in 5 minutes the challenge begins!

    Wow--I had no idea you had so much going. No wonder you're outperforming me then :p
    I really need to decide what I'm doing about GPUs. A HD7850 or HD7770 definitely would not go amiss :p

    I was going to add 2 more 7850's but I may hold up and wait to see what these gpu unit's do. I may go ahead and get 1 and crossfire it with the other.

    No problem man. Alot on the little things take some time to get used to. LOL

    But if you look at your client and then look at the final update you can get a rough guess to how many points you have so far for the next day. Example being I have almost 4k points in the challenge so far.

    Final update has me at 3,442,815 my client is at 3,446,804

    Makes my pc make funny noises almost like a clicking sound but i cannot find where its coming from but i don't care, This can run till something fails hahaha.

    The odd thing is the noise is not there all the time, Maybe i will take it apart and check things later on today as i think the pc could do with a good clean.

    Might also try and get 2 work units going on this GPU but that will have to wait till later to as i need to read up on how to set it up :).

    Sorry to hear it man, we feel for you, really.

    I've thought about joining up for a while, and it's funny that it took this challenge to finally give me the push.

    Is everyone else getting GPU WU. I don't have any going, I have accepted the WU to crunch and I have select to always work on GPU in the profile but nothing is downloading.
