    You can get in on some of the prizes with your 6950 doing some gpu crunching.... which is nowhere near as hard as on a gpu or your power bill than folding is. 12-18 hr/day running a single wu could get you around 5-10k ppd* ;)

    * I get about 10k ppd on my 6870 Hawk (running 24/7 and the GPU never goes over 55C while crunching)

    I'm honestly surprised it's that low--my HD7770s do three or three and a half times that running 24/7. I guess AMD just really hit it right with the HD7x cards :eek:

    There's a lot of truth to this. I was really surprised to find that my power bill wasn't crazy high when I started crunching on my 7970s. I didn't even ask the wife what it was at first, thinking it was going to be depressing, but when I found out, I had totally expected more ;)

    Even better- a 7750 should do 2-3 gpu wu at a time and get you possibly 20-25k ppd running 24/7 and should run cool and under 75w while crunching ;)

    I still never got the muit work units off 1 gpu to work but I might use my 5870 for this contest and see what they can output. I can have like 2 rigs on 24/7 for this contest. Just dont know what rigs im going to use yet.

    Finally got [ion]'s ram in the mail today so I should be able to get my crunchers crunching again =D lost a lot of crunching time because most of my rigs have been down due to me moving some parts around. Also got my lappy back from RMA so that's another computer I can add to my crunchers, sadly it has to go back because ASUS derped and gave me the wrong keyboard (n56vm keyboard for my n56vz, so now it doesn't light up):banghead:. I did lose a 6950 though, dad decided to steal it and put it in a rig he isn't using... might need to steal that back to get some more ppd

    I think the technician didn't connect up the keyboard properly, the hot key is there, is just doesn't do anything, I also check the part number it apparently its backlit so... This is why you don't get MSI to fix an ASUS laptop. Didn't get any free pens either >=( I called them and I was greeted with "MSI technologies, how may I help you?"...this number was listed on my ASUS RMA...

    Count me in. 7970 is now ramping up and my two 7950s are doing a solid 95K each. :)

    Thanks Buck! IIRC Chicken Patty did the same thing :toast:
    Awesome! :toast:
    I'm glad that the RAM came and that the customs folks didn't decide it looked dangerous :laugh:
    A very impressive contribution! :toast: :respect:
    What GPU is that? Conceivably you could do multiple WUs on it :toast:
