    Hanns-G HH281HPB 28" vs. LG M2762D 27"

    My westinghouse 22" crapped out on me not to long ago so i'm in the market to buy a new monitor. I do alot of web design, with some graphic work on the side. I also do quite a bit of gaming as well. 22" is nice, but i've been playing with the 27" iMacs at school so I have the big screen envy.:p...

    What do you think of my $2000 build

    GTS 250 ?

    I just won a XFX GTS 250 at a LAN party at which I had my laptap :rolleyes: I don't even have a rig right now to put this in. My question is, is this card worth building a system around? I plan on building a $1000 system this may. I could easily sell it, or buy another and run SLI. If not...

    fahmon as a service

    Figured since this has to do with F@H this would be an appropriate place to ask. I have setup the web client with fahmon and because the environment i'm in it would be preperred to have this running as a service instead of just staying logged in. I try using sc.exe but whenever I enter a...

    dual processor F@H help!

    Thanks for all the help! As of right now i'll be switching over to the windows SMP with big and advmethods flags. It will be awhile before we get all the racks up because we still are in the build process (including getting more power to the room).

    dual processor F@H help!

    Sorry about that... Yes, as of right now uniprocessor. I've been reading up on SMP clients. Would 1 SMP client work better then 2 instances of the standard? If I were to run SMP, would I turn on hyperthreading to create 4 logical processors? Any recommendations? If you had the ability to set...
