I have a question. With my new Z77 EVGA mobo, it has 5 pci e slots and I am wondering if i could run either
a) 2 x 7870s and 1 or 2 7750/70 for crunching,
or
b) 1 7870 and 3 7750/70s

WITH my Corsair HX1000?

I def want moar WCG GPU power, but am unsure of the most efficient way to do it while keeping my rig as a gaming rig.

2x7870's should get you between 130-160K ppd depending on how hard you push the cards and as a gaming setup they should beat a 7970 by a noticeable margin with the exception of super sized resolutions or games that don't support crossfire well.

3x7770's will do over 100k ppd- gaming? 1GB ram and 128 bit memory bus will limit your performance ;)

the 7770's would be only used for crunching, I would still rock the 7870 i already have for gaming.

I'd say shy away from the HD7770s. The expansion options in the future will be poor (as you will have then dedicated 6 expansions slots to the GPUs) and three HD7770s are (at least in my configuration) only doing a little bit better (~15%) than a HD7950 (for about ~25% more in upfront cost). Maybe if you were only running two on an i7 then they'd do better, but I don't really have that luxury :ohwell:

another 7870 it is then. Still saving up coin for the 3570K, the PSU and SSD are being bought in Feb/Mar.

I personally wouldn't bother with multiple 7770s as two of them equal a single 7870. Get another 7870 so you aren't stuck with a bunch of little useless cards if GPU WUs go away. Plus, not having 4 cards in your rig would allow them to breathe.

To me, 7770s only seem useful as incremental upgrades if you only have small amounts of cash to spend once in a while. I bought a 7970 and 7950 2 days ago (waiting for them) and both those cards would probably be like having 6 7770s.

Anyone tried Win8 with Cat. 13.2b3 drivers and multiple GPU WUs yet? My Win8 install failed to boot after uninstalling the Cat. 12.11b11 drivers a few weeks ago, which made it BSOD twice, auto repair itself and casually destroyed the Win7 install on my SSD in the process which made me too mad to fix Win8. Might try this weekend but just wanted to know if anyone else tried.

I'll give it a try tonight on Win 8 w/ 13.2b3, but I'm not expecting too much :(. I could boot fine with the 12.11bs but I no multi wus.

Nope haven't messed with Win8 (yet).
My numbers will be down today as when I got up this afternoon (worked until 11pm last night and then stayed up until 3am), BOINC on my main rig was shutdown. Not sure what happened. I was downloading Crysis 3 Beta when I went to bed and BOINC was still crunching. When I looked this morning, Origin was showing the install was complete but I noticed my temps were way low. This is the second time this has happened (first time really sucked because I was in Mexico:().

Looking forward to seeing your results. Don't want to spend all the time reinstalling Win8 if I can't do multiple WUs on it. :)

According to USPS, my HD7850 should be here tomorrow :toast:
I'm also setting up two of the HPs on BOINC again--the deal fell through. Apparently the buyer "didn't want to deal with...so much drama" after I told him that I guessed that I would be able to miss part of class, but I wasn't happy about it (apparently coming in the specified time window was too much trouble, so he tried to show up an hour and a half late).

This might be good news....

***I'm using the newly released 13.2b4 driver, not b3


It's just starting now but it hasn't crashed ..... yet!

I have it running 4 WUs but I'll be trying 10 next....

This could be good news :D


Update #1: Running 10 WUs per card


Seems to be working alright :)

I'll be monitoring it for a little while, making sure it's gravy, and I'll be reporting back :toast:


Update #2: 1.5 hrs in and still going strong :clap:


I'll be checking it later on right before bed, maybe in the night, and tomorrow morning. I'll be posting back the results; I'm REALLY hoping that it keep going strong!!! :D

Awesome, keep us updated. Just upgraded to 13.2b4 myself on my Win7 install to try out this weekend.

Alright, I guess that's convincing enough to try out Win8 again. Too bad I just got settled in with Win7 again lol.

Well, it's been running nicely for the past almost 3 hours. I'm going to check on it in the morning and post back.

If it lasts through the night til morning, I'll consider it solid enough. I'll jump back on my Win 7 and finish all the downloaded work, then jump back on 8 and stick with it :)

And I really am hoping this is going to stay strong and work. I hate having to come back to Win 8 so do a few things and in the mean time work off Win 7 off an old slow hdd, where everything takes forever.

I hope you can get back to 8 too and enjoy it :)

I ran windows 8 for a while on a crunched with absolutely ZERO issues. But it was a RC copy. Going back to Windows 7 soon.

Same thing here! I was getting BSOD with most of the 12 series drivers and 13.1 but with the newest beta's and ULPS disabled, I have not had a BSOD yet!

Crunching all night on Win 8 w/ 13.2b4 driver, 10 WUs/card (stock clocks, haven't tried OCing yet), and no driver crashes or computation errors. I glanced back through the EV and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. So I'll be going back to finish the work on Win 7, and then I'll be moving back over to Win 8 permanently :)

It spells good news for those of us who wanted to run multi WUs on Win 8 before but couldn't get past the crashes. :toast:

Glad to see you are also having good results, very awesome! I hope nothing changes!

Nope haven't messed with Win8 (yet).
My numbers will be down today as when I got up this afternoon (worked until 11pm last night and then stayed up until 3am), BOINC on my main rig was shutdown.
That maybe but in the past week you had the most productive rig of all http://boincstats.com/en/stats/15/host/list/10/0/0 # uno HammerON. Now you just need to steal my pie to complete that feat. :)

I will pretty much stay on these drivers until I am proven there is a better one in the future cause I get VERY good frames on ARMA II as well and we all know that the game is a crappy coded engine.
