I've got an 8800 GT that I should have in hand tomorrow. Canada Post tried to deliver today but no one was home!

So I'm coming back for that top 5 spot Cashekicker!

Then once I get my third GTX 285 installed....muhahaha!!!
Not to worry, you have new competition on the horizon, B.A.Hines as a new GTX295 up and running now. His PPD has shot stright up in the last 24. Looks like I will drop down to 7 or 8th spot real soon. Well for a little while at least. Bwaa Bwaa Bwaaha ha ha ha!!!

I'm wondering if I should switch my i7 920 back over to F@H from BOINC. I've seen guys getting huge results on these chips, but I'm also over 3500 RAC in BOINC.

I've been doing BOINC on CPU and F@H on GPU and they haven't seemed to adversely affect one another.

How's the CPU usage levels? I heard it fluctuates a lot. Plus the amount of CPU usage it gets has a HUGE affect on folding performance, just like those 17X driver days.

It does seem to use more CPU, but not as bad as it used to be. The ppd fluctuates like crazy, it's hard to establish a baseline figure. One thing that seems to happen is the higher # Gen's seem to give a higher ppd than the lower # Gen's, the difference can be 300-400 ppd.
