    My 7750 takes about 7-8 min to finish 2 WUs and my 6950 takes 15-16 min to finish 4 so they are about even but the 6950 has a 130w TDP while for the 7750 it's 44w.


    The 7850 1GB seems to have the best price/ppd ratio.

    Indeed you can--that's just over 1k a day, which even a fast C2D can do :toast:

    Good work! :respect:

    I think my C2D laptop at work does ~550 PPD at 1.8 GHz (very close to the TPU PPD Estimator's estimate). Double that would be 1100 PPD at about 3.6 GHz. Sounds about right.

    I found some data and put together a chart to try and break down price/performance and the math seems to claim that the 7770 is among the best performing for the least money. (I need to update the chart slightly though)

    I've found that my T9600 (2.8GHz Penryn-6M) does about 1100 PPD. An OCed C2D could do 1500 no problem :toast:

    I have my PC in my bedroom, which is also where I work. So the PC is off at night, and has to be quiet enough to not be distracting during the day. In addition, I have the GPU set to "only when idle", and I often set my PC (and GPU especially) to F@H rather than WCG.

    As a result, my daily performance has varied a lot. I was out for most of the day yesterday though, and managed 8k BOINC :)

    Last week; it's crunch time! Hopefully everyone had a good time during the challenge; it's great to see some fresh blood to the team as well.

    We should be in for another game giveaway soon, followed by an awesome hardware giveaway! :toast:

    Agreed--I'd like to thank everyone who has taken part or donated a prize :respect:

    Norton will be handling this week's game giveaway :toast:

    As far as the prize drawing goes, I'm going to start with the most expensive prizes (HD7770s) and draw names, eliminating each person who has won from any more prizes. I'll continue down the list (by value) until we're out of prizes. Then I'll throw everyone back into the pot and draw the grand prize (i7-3930k + motherboard). Good luck all! :toast:

    Sounds great Ion, I hope I can win a 7770 for my friend since his computer can't run much at all or a Frozen Cpu gift card since i want to get into watercooling. :D

    What's the redemption deadline? I will be away for the weekend. I should still be able to maintain contact but in case I can't?

    Depends on the work unit--usually anywhere from four to ten days. So you should be good :toast:

    I meant for the contest. I suppose I should have appended "should I win anything."

    Well, I'd like people to let me know within 24 hours (Saturday night) but I'll probably give a 48-hour-limit (Sunday night) :toast:

    Sometimes, when I have my client set to "use GPU when idle", my mouse will randomly lock up momentarily. Any ideas? It doesn't happen at any other time, and yes my system is rock solid stability wise.

    As for my current progress, looks like I'll have hit 40K-ish BOINC by the end of the challenge. Unfortunately I'll probably then go through a period of inactivity, but I should be back up and running by mid-April at the latest.

    Yes--what's the idle time period? If it's a short time specified in BOINC (~3 minutes) and you are only intermittently using the computer, then it will fire up the GPU, only to have you try and use the computer. Try setting it to a longer time to wait (~10 minutes) :toast:
