New Comp

Well, almost new. My wife finally decided she really had enough. I'm trying to keep the build in the 400 to 600 US range. May end up going over the 600 by a little. I am looking at one big item that's a GTX570 this looks good as far as the speeds compared to other 570's. And price in the range. But kind of worried about overheating problems from reviews. I will be just air cooling, but will do a max air amount with fans. On the m-board going with a intel chip set probably a msi. I just always had good luck with them. Case a cooler master or thermaltake. Power supply at least a 600 if not more. 4 gigs of ram.

I've got two gtx560's running now. But had a set back on two computers but still turning out more then when I had all four running. Should have them back next week.

Okay, I have not got the other two computers up yet. They were the "main work horses" I had before. Just the two gtx560's going and did some tweaking. But my average points per day before was around 13,000 with the 4 computers. (Two just barely turned in any of the points.) now its showing ppd totaling yesterday as 25,167. I'm hoping for around the 35,000 range when the other two get back on line.

Got one of the old computers back on line so I should be getting another boost in points.

What are you getting from each of the 560's? I take it they're not the Ti versions?

Isn't the GPU client just the easiest client ever? Fire and forget!

Getting a little over 14,000 ppd each. Putting just a small bump up on the cards. And nope not the TI.

Nice numbers. Mine are here My 460 gets around the same as your 560s but I expect mine uses a little more juice.
