Those rules make my head spin, but it looks neat.

Bleh. Time to bite the bullet and build my new rig. That QX9650 isn't doing any good on my shelf...

Do we have to be members over there?

If you guys need help, I'll contribute.

Phenom 9500
Phenom 9600BE
X2 3800+ @ 2.6Ghz

HD3870X2

You all know the rest.

Hopefully 3oh6 sees this because he could probably take the on SuperPI challenge head-on.

Can I play?

I know I'm pretty much a hardware n00b, but my rig isn't too shabby. (Plus any chance to beat the Yanks!)

I am going to try out an E8400 this weekend.

heres the rules so i forum can enter the contest

Participating Forums......
Each Forum must provide their own Forum Police (2 to 5 is preferred)
All cops will have access to "Forum Wars Admin" and the Database for Score entries
If a Forum has no forum cops they will be required to post at The Raptor Pit on the Scoring thread.
Participating Forums need to create 3 threads
A discussions thread that I can link to from the main site for checking each other out and taunting
A closed "Forum Wars 2007 Entry" thread (not hidden) (where all scores will be posted)
An "Forum player entry thread" to Recruit Players and Cops
And of coarse... a passworded private forum for your players only.
Forums that wish NOT to Field an A Team will be required to have AT LEAST a B team


look like we need 20 players or 20 rigs mainly high end rigs and then.... maybe and Admin could create the thread and verify that everything is OK for the contest
