There aren't any gpu projects on WCG atm so those settings shouldn't matter- you can snooze or suspend it if you like :)

I was previously on 7.0.64(?). I have had some random instability and weird issues like GPUs displaying blank screens coming out of standby and problems with my work VPN. Since I've upgraded to the latest BOINC client (7.2.42) that has not returned (knock on wood).

As I said before, I have some cheap video cards. I have a Radeon X (600 or 1300), a Quadro 290 and maybe a few others, just nothing along the lines of a 7770 (aka a real decent card). I'd be happy to donate any of these, and I love them for the fact that they are passive cooled and low-power, which makes them nice for rigs crunching CPU WU's.

Depending on what version you are running, it might be beneficial to do so. otherwise, only upgrade if you have a problem you are trying to resolve (as in my case).

Looks like we have a Challenge rig in the works :toast:

Here's what we have/what we need so far:

Builder- Mad Shot :respect:

- motherboard (socket AM3)- Mad Shot
- AM3 cpu (Quad core or better)- still need
- DDR3 ram- pending/still need
- Cooler- CM 212- Mad Shot
- gpu- specs pending
- HDD- specs pending
- PSU- Corsair CX500- Norton
- case- pending (Norton)
- OS- Ubuntu or Mint (Win7 if someone has a key available)

If anyone has any parts they would like to donate for the rig please let us know :)
Update:

Mobo, ram, gpu, and Hsf I am donating and If I can afford it I will throw in a copy of Ubuntu. Also hdd will between Norton and I. Norton is covering the psu and case. We just need a cpu. Would like a Phenom II x4 or better if possible. And I am building the rig. I am taking back over my useful spot in these contest. LOL


Also I will accept donation of parts anytime for future builds for contest also. We are trying to do a giveaway rig each time.

I see some Phenoms at <$60 but they're a week away from ending. There's one ending in a couple of days but a)it's an OEM CPU (X4 840T(?), compatibility issues?) and b)it had bent pins. which the seller straightened.

I'll see what I can do.

My Athlon II X4 740 is a nice cpu, I doubt a Ph II. would be noticeably faster in the real world.

P.S.: thank you vm for the offer.

P.P.S.: I shall see what I might have to offer (not for the rig for practical reasons).

Hell TRWOV, anything will work. What ever you feel comfortable with. The board will run up to and including a 1100t x6.
