    I've added the app_info file back to my HD7770/i7-920 and it's up and running 3 GPU WUs at once now :toast:

    KieX found that four brought no benefit over three--I'm running 3 on my HD7770 :)

    I can't remember seeing that KieX made any statement about 3 being better then 4. I did an investigation on my rig 10 days ago and posted it somewhere here. In short with 3 it reports every 2:18 and with 4 every 2:07 so a slight advantage with 4. It might be different if you use the rig- I did the test with absolutely no programs open.

    Returning home with HD6850 and GTX570 in tow. One for WCG and one for F@H(guess which). Any idea how many WU's I can run on the 6850?

    My wife's grandmother passed away last year right before Thanksgiving. I understand what it's like going through the holidays with a loss like that. Take your time and lean on those around you when you need it.

    :)

    Looking at the specs of the HD6850, I'd suggest try four or five--but you may get better results with more.

    Does anyone know what's happened to da_vid and Stan's WCG account? I haven't seen da_vid around the forums, and Stan's WCG account dropped off a while back :(

    Wow, your right [Ion]!! He was pretty active for a bit, and as you noticed, is pretty much gone again.

    Everything is up and going:
    [​IMG]
    I'm running 3 WUs on each GPU and then one on just the CPU. I think I may add a second to the CPU later--usage is in the 60-80% range most of the time.
