See you did your first unit m8. If you get the gfx card going with your passkey aswell the 940 will start making bonus points in no time. My 4870 generally puts out 3-4 units a day compared to 1.8ish for the 940, it does rob about 8% of the cpu tho'.

My PPD has been fluctuating a bit since this thread started:

- I initially was folding on my desktop using the Linux amd64 SMP client: ~1000 ppd.
- I got a dumpster dive PIII Celeron for an HTPC and started folding on that as well: still ~1000 ppd (the Celery averaged about 30-50 ppd)
- A buddy gave me his old ASUS A7N8X-E with an XP 3200+ inside, which made a lot better HTPC than the Celery. The Celery unit got repurposed to a file server and still folded: ~1250 ppd
- The A7N8X-E ate through its second PSU before I realized that the board draws all of the CPU juice off of +5V and I needed a PSU that can provide ~200 W on the +5V rail to run it flat out. I nixed folding on it to preserve my dwindling supply of crappy old pre-ATX12V PSUs: ~1000 ppd
- The Celery went belly-up and I picked up an old server with two 3.2 GHz Gallatin Xeons from eBay: ~1500 ppd
- I pulled my old broken laptop with a C2D U7500 (really, just a bare board at this point as the chassis has a short and the monitor is dead) out of storage to do video work. I started folding on it as well: ~2100 ppd
- The FAH program starts playing badly with my Xeon machine and hard-locking it, so I quit folding on it. New SMP clients also lower my PPD: ~1500 ppd
- The Radeon x1900 in my desktop dies and I replace it with a GTS250 and fold using the WINE CUDA wrapper: PPD fluctuates wildly between about 2500 and 6000 depending on what WUs the GPU gets.

The one thing I learned that's sad is that one $80 GPU can produce as many PPD as four computers containing 5 CPUs with 7 cores between them

The fans shot on my FX-60 so I've lost that for a bit. Getting an Iceage 120 I won on ebay to stick on it. The old stock cooler fan lasted well but it didn't like me sticking my finger in it, went from a small noise to an horrific din.

It seems like most people just lost interest. There are a total of 310 people who have ever folded a WU for the team but only 12 are currently active and most of the production is done by just one member. There seems to be quite a few people with some fairly decent hardware on this site that aren't folding- maybe we should concentrate on getting them in the fray as they should be able to pump out 5000+ ppd apiece. The new 8-core Bulldozers should be able to complete bigadv WUs and get the huge bonus associated with them, so that's all the more impetus to get people to participate. Do you really want to let the Intel team (105th place) or a bunch of Dungeons and Dragons guys (154th place) to beat us? Come on, grab a few Opterons and get to it

I just started my box up again today after an upgrade. It's starting to get cold here anyway so the extra heat will be nice. I can't do bigadv but I should put in around 10k ppd for a while dependent on how much Skyrim I play.

I would love to try this out and contribute but unfortunately money is extremely tight and my wife would not understand or allow me to run up our already expensive electricity bill running my rig all of the time.

What kind of upgrade did you do TLH?

I've turned on a dual core with smp. I hope it's fast enough to make the deadline.

Also picked up a cheap quad core and started that folding 2 days ago.

I don't know what my points will be with these but every little bit helps.

I migrated to AM3 and a 1100t. Also had a new case to put it all in which I'm really liking, so quiet and runs alot cooler than my old system.

One thing that does bug me is it won't restart properly sometimes for some reason and one of my hdd keeps disappearing. Not sure what's going on there as it's rock solid stable otherwise.

That 1110T should do a pretty good job for you TLH.
I have been getting good results with the 1090T.

I am using the 1090T@3.8ghz with smp 4 advanced client running pretty much all the time. Every so often I run a gpu client in the mix. I want to move to BD, but I am going to wait a few more months to see how things pan out with it. Been a while since I have done any upgrades.

I toyed with the idea of running the gpu aswell but decided against it, I'm putting in plenty of points as it is. Was tempted though just to see what my 6870 would do and just how much better it is than my old 4870.
