    looking at the stats and it looks like EVGA Cheesecake will be the top team by the end of December next year. They're currently producing about 2,000,000 more than [H]ardOCP every week (About 1,285,000 compared to 951,000 daily). CustomPC/Bit-tech is just over 300,000 ppd off matching [H]ard themselves. current production rates will see CustomPC/Bit-tech be 5th overall by september and 4th in 9-10 years time lol. Gotta get my card producing again. It died once so I gave up folding but after it died the 2nd time possible due to a crappy cooler I'm feeling happy to produce again....plus it'll give me an excuse to upgrade sooner =)

    Did the same thing. Just added my GTX 275 and will add my 8800 GTS at the end of the week after my new power supply gets in.

    Ahh, going to add my 4850 as soon as it arrive, doubt my current radeon 9600 will help much. :p

    @Mongoose - you can't even fold with a 9600 it's so old! :p I remember my 9800 Pro though, that series was a gem.

    I haven't been folding in a while - partly because my girlfriend doesn't want me to have my PC on all the time and also our leccy bill has been high. We've changed provider though and got a much better deal now though. I should look into installing a Win7 client, I can at least run it when I'm just browsing the net.

    I don't know how much help it will be but i figure if i'm using my pc during the day that having one of my 2 cores working on this is better than none. It may only be a few work units but every little helps right? My GPU wouldn't really be any help here though so stuck with a single 2.6Ghz core i'm afraid

    Yes indeed - every little helps - although you need to make sure that if you PC isn't on all the time that it does complete work units before their deadline (typically 3-4 days for the SMP CPU client).
