New Rig...

Postby SkyWlf77 » Sat Jan 31, 2009 11:12 pm

Hi all...

I've got a new rig coming in towards the end of this month that should make a drastic jump in my points production. Simplistic specs are as follows:

Intel QX9650 3GHz/1333MHz Quad-Core (operating at 4GHz)
8GB (4x2GB) GSkill DDR2-800 RAM Kit (running at 4-4-4-12 timings)
Gigabyte GTX280 PCI-E x16 Video Card


I'll be running the SMP Client on the CPU and the GPU Client on the Video Card both inside Virtual Machines under Windows Vista Ultimate x64. Expected points per day output should be between 10,000 and 15,000 PPD from this machine.

I'll also be adding a server and one more rig to the mix, but nowhere close to these specs...A dual-P3 1.4GHz w/1GB RAM (server) and a 2.8GHz Pentium D w/2GB RAM (extra rig).

I know that people tend to look at someone weird when their points jump that much, so I figured I had better post here as a "heads-up" so that everyone knew it was legit.

Thanks,
Jason

I'm still not going to catch you :(

I'd need about 3 or 4 more of these to do that :lol:

I'm down to 3 laptops and 5 rigs now, plus my wife's dual core that runs at weekends. Not keen on the WU's that are getting dished out right now, decided not to fold anything for less than 10 points per hour, I can get anything from 120-150 points per hour on my GPU's so why bother with CPU folding, may as well save on Electric.

Well, unfortunately, this was not to be. We have decided to move into a new home instead, so I will be stuck with my current equipment for the time being :(

It'll be worth it, though, with our new home :)

Thanks,
Jason

A game needs 2GB or ram to play and i have 1GB. will using a boostready 1gb memory stick help me? the game is fall out 3 and its minimal system requirements on vista is 2GB of ram and I only have 1GB. now would the ready boost be useful to me in this situation? and would increasing my virtual memory help?
