    Woohooow ... we have a massive peak in work units done thanks to the GPU client, check out the stats .. very nice you guys ! Pretty much on average we did 44.000 points per 24 hours, yesterday we bumped to 118.000 points.

    Nice!

    Having some problems here though :(

    I had to install those drivers (174.55? for XP) and they absolutely suck. sli gaming performance is awful, not only that the GPU client locks up my computer regularly, even without any overclocking. I can't open the viewer or I get an instant hang. Every now and then I'll get a BSOD pointing to the nvidia display driver; I hope they release a new driver or client soon because this is just annoying.

    With just the GPU client running, CPU usage is around 26% which is quite a lot more than I expected.

    Well managed to get all 3 clients running including the smp and now I'm getting an average ppd of ~7k :D

    Only downside is the cpu usage and temps.

    I went from the 177.26 drivers to the 177.35 drivers and it boosted my performance from 1500.0 to 3000.0!

    I just installed the 175.80's as the 177's were unstable and wouldn't let me overclock with Rivatuner :confused:.

    These drivers are awesome.
    I thought there was a problem at first as my 3dm06 score went from 21000 to ~15500, but games got a massive boost in performance. Not sure what went wrong with 3dmark, don't really care tbh, keeping these drivers for a while!

    (And the viewer doesn't crash now either, it just gobbles up my cpu clocks instead)

    There seems to be an issue with the GeForce Folding@Home Client...

    It will not run on my FX-5500 256MB

    :p

    J/K I know it's not supported. :)
