    Unable to OC after GPU upgrade

    I'll see if I can scrounge up some money to get that 520 Watter. Any point in saving up for a 80+ gold unit?

    I'm a little confused about the 25k points thing. My WCG member page says 90k points, and my boinc manager says 13k work done. Which stat is taken into account for the contest?
