Yeah. Looks good so far.

I'll be adding another 4 GPUs (2x GT 240, 1x 9800GT and one GT 220) tonight as long as I can find resistors for dummy plugs.

You can try using the -forcegpu nvidia_g80 flag in lieu of dummy plugs even with Vista/Win7, but this has given mixed results.

Ie. so if you have two or three GPUs in a box, you can use the flag for -gpu 1 and -gpu 2 in the clients. I am using it now on my flakey GTX 295 on one of my Win7 x64 boxes and it's been rock solid stable.

What I'm not sure about is if it's working due to SLI being enabled, and I'm not wanting to try that until after the CC.

That would be great. You are looking at an extra 12 to 15K PPD there roughly.

We're all in this together as a DAM unified front and kicking bananass all the way to an unexpectedly high finish.

Canadians are the greatest underdogs on the planet and I am proud to be part of this crazy escapade.

Good luck Ted. OCN and EVGA are taking competition to a whole new and awesome level, and it's all for a great cause, so keep 'em coming!

Interestingly, the ONLY WUs I have been getting on all the GPUs I have folding (GTX 295, GTX 285, GTX 275, GTX 260 216 and GT 240) have been ones worth 450 points. No idea why.

As for the gpu-1 etc. I am using that for all my cards along with the force nvidia_g80 flag.

Luck of the draw??? I've been getting a steady stream of 783 and 587 pointers... better than getting 450's I guess... everything's running smoothly on my end...

According to the EOC page we have moved up to 4th with some BIG updates today.

We are only 250,000 points shy of third place T32Monkeys > overclockers.com!

Keep 'em coming motherfolders. Good show!
