Yeah I hope ATI catches up though. It's a shame I'll have all that power sitting half idle.

Hmm, Warlord,   9/8 has come and gone and I let the date slide by accident.  It has been too busy here.

Can you shoot us a wrap-up through 9/8 and beyond? 

We need to pick a winner! Big Smile

 

Sorry dudes, we got busy there for a bit but someone won something, that much I can say.  Wink

I'm just speechless, and don't know what else to say but thank you. In my 33 years I have never won anything worth winning and it seems all that just changed. I have had a ruff last few weeks and this really gives me something positive to think about. Thank you Davo, Marco and anyone else whom should be mentioned.Embarrassed

Gratz to you guys on the booty.

Nice to see the team so active again.

Doesn't look like I'll be able to stop Warlord et al kicking me off top spot. At the moment I can only get the following folding:

2x Dual Xeon X5450 (3Ghz 1333FSB 12MB L2 cache) 8GB FB DDR2 667 running W2K8 Enterprise 64bit
1x Dual Xeon P4 3.06Ghz 533FSB 4GB DDR W2K8 standard
1x P4D 3Ghz 800FSB 4MB L2 cache 2GB DDR2 667
Oh and PS3 when I remember to leave it switched on.
