    I'm doing what I can--if the GTX550TI keeps going (and if I can figure out why it's suffered a 4k PPD loss) then I'll have not quite 60k going :toast:

    Ok so I've been thinking about this whole thing, and since I know zero of F@H, would it be worth moving over either my 7930 rig or my 7970 rig? I can't do both obviously :eek:

    I'd appreciate a little feedback of which one would be easier. I think of rather move the 7930 over to F@H but is it worth the points?

    I know the 7970's are pulling down 40K+ in F@H PPD, but don't know about the 7930. I say try the 7930 and let's find out what it will do!

    If a 7970 gets 40K+, then a 7930 which is 75% of a 7970 should do 30K+ i'd imagine.

    It's nice to see that AMD cards are doing well, considering I own two 7950s and a 7970. Perhaps they will be the new GTX 580s sooner or later. :)

    Alright thanks, sounds good. When I get off work, I'll give it a go with the 7930 (7870 tahiti). I think it'll be easier than messing with the 7970s, especially since they are crunching away. (Can't give up all my WCG points)

    I hope it's not too much work :eek:

    Seems like the 7 series cards are doing really well. Back when I still folded with my 5870 it only raked in about 8k PPD, I assume this hasn't changed?

    I noticed -bigadv units now require 16 threads. I imagine we don't have many people who run those anymore due to the prohibitive cost of such a system... seems like GPUs are making a comeback.

    The Challenge is only 10 days long. I say fold for 10 and back to WCG.

    Alas! I know I said that I'd be switching over tonight, but it'll be tomorrow when I switch over to F@H; I have lots of WUs that need to finish up. Plus, I just got home and am leaving early tomorrow morning, so I won't have the time to get it all set up til tomorrow evening :(
