If you are aiming for this amount of PPD.. it will be difficult to reach it with the clock of your CPU.. try to overclock a little more.. After my 6903 finished, Ill be going back to overclocking and will try to hit 5Ghz to get a lower TPF and be prepared for 6904 Wu.
Now, he has a 960T. Which is a Phenom II quad (which in some cases and on certain mobos can unlock 2 extra cores as it's based on the Thuban core), there's no reasonable OC that he can reach (even with WC) that would make that CPU capable of finishing 6903 let alone 6904. robbo2 had a 955 (I believe) at 4.4G and was just able to finish the a BA-8 (6900 or 6901 I think it was) which are much smaller. If he can unlock those extra core and still run at 4.1G he'd have a shot at finishing both the 6903 and 6904, but it's gonna take fast memory and him to give up his gaming habits. I was about a minute short of having a TPF that could finish the 6904 in time with my X6@4G, ~1700-1800MHz RAM and I was running native Ubuntu.

How much more ppd does the linux vm add??? I might try that.
A PHII quad at 4G should ideally get maybe 10k-12k in Windows, of course this is with with minimal other usage.
I got about 10-15% lower TPFs and 20% higher PPD switching from Win to this VM
on my X6@3444.

I just put in the argument I'd like directly in the shortcut, having a few different shortcuts that have different arguments. Makes it faster to change, usefully if you're testing things.
