    Re: I finally ordered it

    Are you letting the GPU do work while the computer is busy? When I first started using my HD3200 with Collatz I let it run all the time until I just couldn't stand the sluggishness anymore. During that period of time tasks were completed in around 24 hours each. After changing it to suspend GPU work while the computer was busy, completion time dropped to about 9 hours each. Just a thought.

    Re: I finally ordered it

    If you think my times posted yesterday were ridiculous, they are even better now. Milkyway has a new series of jobs (a good percentage of what they send that my ATI cards can finish in 15-20 seconds for 214 points and my 295's can do them in about 95 seconds down from 11 minutes.

    These numbers are almost too high, but who am I to complain.

    Wow.... those numbers are insanely fast
    My 9600GT (only 64 Cuda cores) takes about 1800 seconds to make 130 credits (SETI@home).... however, as slow as it is... it is about 10x faster than a single core of my Athlon II x4 635 (2.9GHz) which takes 19500 seconds to get 125 credits. (I have slightly overclocked my CPU to 3.33GHz since then).
