    Best bang for the buck $500?

    What would be my best PPD for $500, assuming it would probably be a wintel machine, I would procure the OS separately. Would GPU folding be the way to go,with a slower CPU and minimal memory? Ideally a small SSD would be the OS drive, but a small laptop drive would suffice in a pinch. If...

    Is it just me? PPD Way down

    It's back to normal. I think my computer rebooted into some sort of almost-safe-mode but not-quite-safe-mode, so I couldn't tell that the optimizations had been turned off.

    Is it just me? PPD Way down

    Rebooted and it seems to be doing fine now. 2-3 minutes per frame.

    Hmm...I stopped and restarted it. I'll check it again tomorrow.

    Is it just me? PPD Way down

    I restarted the service and here's what my log looks like: --- Opening Log file [November 8 01:17:32 UTC] # Windows SMP Console Edition ################################################# ###############################################################################...

    Is it just me? PPD Way down

    CPU usage is still at 100% (all cores), so there's no issues there. I would have to look at the log to get the TPF and which types of WU's I'm running. I'll check those when I get home.

    That's the other weird issue...it's only seems to be returning one WU a day.

    Is it just me? PPD Way down

    Is it just me? My PPD went from 24K to 400 for some odd reason the last couple days. I checked and my FAH service is still running on all cores. Anybody else have a similar issue?

    Wish I had more time to play SC2. Life, man...life.

    Any 1P setups worth it?

    That's my experience as well. I had my 2600K up to around 4.4 Ghz at stock voltage, but it would occassionally reboot. Didn't want to push the voltage, so pulled it down to 4.0Ghz and get about 24K PPD, enough for me to get nearly on page 3 at EOC!

    Google's Marissa Mayer Named Yahoo CEO

    Her estimated net worth is 300 Million. That's more than even "run Countrywide into the ground and pull the ripcord on my golden parachute as Bank of America hoovers up the remains" money. She's definitely not doing this for the money. Also, I'm almost 37, have a computer science degree, and...

    8 Reasons The PC Still Matters

    Of course, I still have a desktop as my primary. However, my laptop has become almost redundant to my 4.3" smartphone. I can check my email and browse the web on my smartphone, which is what I would mostly do on the laptop. I don't have a tablet because my smartphone is good enough. Still, I...

    Corsair Accelerator 30GB and 60GB SSD Cache Drives

    I don't really see the point of these drives/software other than you're lazy. And paranoid about SSD drives going down.
