Personally I think the contest is a bit high for Sept to reach 1 mil in 2 months for the average single user. 500K is probably about right. I also feel that is any out there is reaching 1 mil by themself, they likely have little use for the machine prize. Just my thoughts. I am going to help because I feel like helping, but it will be a close call for me to reach 1 mil by Oct 31st. Triple GPU 460's and i7 are already working the points through and I can reach the 16-17K per day range, but I will have to make that every single day without stop to make the 1 mil mark by contest end. Probably throw in another couple of GPU's if I get too close to call, but right now I am more concerned for my already high monthly power bill.
