    Best GPU for $100-$150

    is there a difference between the R7 260x and the 260X? Either way I think i will wait the 2 weeks and see what the 750 ti ends up being, as far as price goes.

    Best GPU for $100-$150

    Ive been looking around for a new video card on a low budget. I havent purchased a card in a while. Whats better GTX 650TI or 260X. Looks like you can get both in a 2GB version for less than $150, but there are a lot of complaints about ATI's drivers. The 260 has more processors and...

    Zalman Reserator XT

    Anyone have a Zalman Reserator XT? I am considering getting one (cheap $60). Is it worth it? I have a q8200 with a Xigmatec S983 currently sitting on the processor, keeping it at about 68C while its folding away at 100%. Anyone think this is worth an attempt? Or doyou think that my temps...

    Dual SR-2 club

    It it better to buy an sr-2 system for like $5000 or buy like 30+ triple core systems that could be built for the same price? ppd/$ wise does this system produce more points than say 30 Athlon II X3 445 systems with 2gb of ram each that would probably cost about the same.

    Interesting read

    I just switched from running multiple clients to the smp and my points doubled on my q8200 rig. Its good to help fold to cure cancer but competition is what drives so many people to fold. There are some valid points here and not addressing them is just gonna end up hurting everyone involved.

    Hard drive heatsinks?

    It wouldn't help too much even if they were touching each other. Maybe you should try Nexus FRIZZBEE or something like that.

    How to run multiple fah

    I tried this, but it turned out to be too complicated for my simple mind. I just opened a console client with my gui client and boinc at 50%. That seems to be working fine on my q8200. Thanks all.

    How to run multiple fah

    I have looked around and maybe I am not looking hard enough. I have a quad core and i would like to run fah on more than one core. Is there any easy way to do this? I am using the graphical client right now and you can't install 2 graphical clients like you could before. I am currently...

    15 Million points?!?

    That's huge. Maybe someday for me. I think the year 2020. Does anyone know how the rankings work on Its not in any order. I would think that more points=closer to 1, but its all mixed up.

    My computer crashed and I had to reinstall windows, probably hard drive problem. The side of the case is open and there are 2 fans blowing through the heatsink (the heatsink that comes with it and a 120mm that i put adjacent to the 92mm). Ambient temp is 19-22C in my house at any given time...
