    Thank you! So have you registered on the WCG website and set BOINC up on your computer with the WCG project?

    Yes i have created an account. I picked gpugrid(had an nvidia symbol next to it) as a project but it won't seem to start. It looks like it stops at the cpu level.

    When you go to add a project, world community grid will be near the very bottom of that very long list.

    I'd like to join. My WCG username is roakfurt. Haven't really used BOINC or WCG in a while (ran it for a little bit a while ago) and when it says turn in the points what does that mean?

    You can check the link in my sig to Ion's Essentials thread for joining the Team etc... as far as turning in pts, crunch for our Team, report your work (it's automatic really), and you can check your progress in a variety of ways

    That means that you need to leave your computer on and crunching enough that it returns work units during at least half of the days of the competition--and enough to get 25k points over the course of the event :)
    Welcome everyone! :toast:

    Haha, my bad. I have a FX 4100 @ 4.4 and a HD 7850 @ 1100/1250. Saw the thread on running more workloads on a GPU and will probably get that running sometime later.

    That's a very solid setup--I'm pulling ~45-50k PPD from my HD7850 setup (albeit on a lowly i3 @ 3.1GHz)
