I'm still fighting with myself on what to do
CL3P20, I'm still looking for a deal on the 8800GS cards since the evga
source ran out
... I could go brand new, but I just don't want to deal with MIR
I did put up a "Wanted" post that hasn't gotten any replies as of yet either
I finally found out what was crashing my vista x64 system!! GPU#2 (the one right at the bottom of the case) was running at 109C
...that's right, 109C
. I pulled it right outta there and guess what? My RAM was fried from the heat too...From where I sit, 65C is lookin pretty cool right now.
I'm running on five GPU's for now, so it looks like I may need to win the November competition to stay ahead of Ben and Indignity---lol---
I broke down and re-installed the annoying SMP MPI clients in all three rigs just to limp along till the budget allows replacement parts
