I presume you mean 220 points, not tasks. And, no, 220 points is not very good--however, it takes a decent while for things to get up to speed, so it's not unexpected that it'll be that low for your first day or whatever. After about four or five days things ought to be much better. If you run your FX8350 at 80% 24/7 it should be something like 4,000-5000 a day, depending on what else you do with the computer.

Give it a few days to spool up. You should probably and I am just guessing here, be in the 3 to 4k ppd range at 80%

If you're really curious, go to mycontribution and look for the button that says 'result status.' Sort by return time. You'll be able to see work units as they come in to be validated. You can view pending validations by selecting that option under the result status drop down and filtering. There are also many other options.

This will let you keep an eye on your results pretty much in real time.

One question : Why there is not any project which use the GPU? I assume GPU crunching is superior than CPU. Or am i doing something wrong?

GPUs are indeed much faster--however, they're also far harder to code applications for, and for many it's simply not possible (or, if it's made to work, it's so inefficient that it offers no benefit). Unfortunately, there are currently no GPU-enabled projects for WCG.

There's plenty of GPU work with F@H and I know the F@H team would love some more company. I'm going to fire up some folding action today/tomorrow and give my cards another little go :D

Edit: just realized I lost my folding badge so I really need to get back in :oops:

It's all good now, it should be back soon. I got the 7770 folding already, and I'm going to give the 290s a run for a little while like a few days.

The 4790 is running again to make up for the WCG loss
