    It is only a dual core so no you cannot run -bigadv:(
    But smp is better than nothing:)

    No, you need an i7 4/6 core with 8/12 threads to finish the -bigadv work units in the allotted time.
    Best to stick to the SMP client.

    I'd leave both of those rigs alone as they seem to be doing just fine.

    I meant to add that I uploaded my 2nd bigadv WU in the last 3 hours. Unfortunately my next one will be almost two days from now.

    So a Q6600 at ~3.6 couldn't even do it?

    Unfortunately not :( ..the deadline for -bigadv work units is 4 days, so you need a 4/6 core CPU with HyperThreading and a little bit of an over-clock to gain the bonus points for them.

    But you can still run the SMP client. I run it on my everyday rig, which has a Q9550 at 3.8, and I get ~11,000 PPD from it.

    EDIT: For example my i7 920 clocked at 4.2 takes just over 2 days to complete a -bigadv, although I run a GPU client on the same machine, which slows it slightly.

    A pair of 9600GSOs and a 8400GS on folder #1. I should have another pair of 9600GSOs (on folder #2) up later today and I periodically let my 990X complete a WU or two, but I can't let it work bigadvs because I need the processing power for other things and they just take too long.

    We take what we can get, but that CPU would make a nice addition. :)
