Interesting idea lol

Just wondering if anyone in here is using ATI 5770 for processing w/u's? This little card seems to multi card scale really nice, and I could start with one or two, and add 1 every month or so. Seems like everyone believes that BOINC is more optimized for ATI cards now, (used to be you couldn't use 'em at all for anything other than testing bad drivers). But, the times seemed to have changed. So, I was thinking, with 2 of these cards in crossfire:

*good gaming ability
*Cheap at around $110 ea, and will only go down in price
*DX10/DX11 for future games
*all four pci-e slots on mobo filled (with my other 2 8800gts's)
*can add a card when prices drop,(or paycheck is good)
*can scale awsome up to 3-4 cards in crossfire-x to match top-of-the-line offerings from team red or green.

Just seems like a win-win for me and boinc!
Any thoughts?
edit:I've made up my mind. I'm selling my GallienKrueger 1001rbII bass guitar head, and using the procedes to upgrade my gaming rig...don't have time to play bass much anymore. That should be enough to net me 3 cards and a Phenom2 quad core. It looks like 3 of these would scale about the same or slightly better than 2 470's in sli....... W00T!

I'm using a 5770 and in my opinion (and my professional reviewers alike) it is the best Performancerice card. It is great for gaming at 1650x1080 resolution and its heat output isn't bad. Plus, the price for them is quite nice.

In terms of BOINC, due to its lack of Double Precision (DP), it cannot be used for the Milkyway@Home project, but it does great in the other 3 (Collatz Conjecture, DNETC@Home, PrimeGrid).

here they are folks 1600 shaders at $200, you absolutely cannot go wrong with these, two of these cards in crossfireX will crunch Milkyway ati13 in 1:25 seconds only topped by a 5970 that will crunch the same wu in 1:15 get them while they are still on the shelf.

Actually, there is a quite thorough review over at guru's, using 1, 2, 3 and yes 4 of those power color single slot cards.
It also compares the performance to many other cards as well... and there are pics!!! I was surprised by the absolute scalability of these little cards. Until you hit quad, it's an almost perfect say...92-96% with each added card.
http://www.guru3d.com/article/powerc...sfirex-review/
Reading these reviews is one of the reasons I'm looking at this card. As I said, I don't have alot of upfront cash. But I may be able to swing something this week. I got Metro 2033 last week, and it just doesn't look good on my athlon3000+ and 1 geforce 8800gts, (you want to talk to me about unplayable framerates?!). My old 590 board died, and until the new mobo arrives this week, I'm stuck with a single graphics solution, i.e., no gaming aside from DiabloII. As the newer board has more (pcie2) slots than I've ever owned (combined), I'm trying to increase my gaming experience, and keep doing w/u's at the same time. My ol' 8800gts' chug along ok... they don't do the double precision work, but I've always donated my 'puter time to seti, anyway. So, If I can use the nvidia cards just for w/u, and grab 2 5770 for cheep, I'm gonna go that way. Eventually, adding one more 5770, possibly 2 if needed in the future. Remember, I have to update my dual core proc...after I see what I can wring out of it under the H70...hoping for 3.4-3.5. Otherwise, I think it may bottleneck those new gpu's substantially. Keeping an eye out for a 940,955,965 on craigslist, etc.

Hey all. Oddly enough, I was playing BC2 Vietnam earlier and Gill started talking to me since I had my OCN clan tag on. Told me about this section, I'd never heard of it before. Anyways now I'm doing the milky way boinc thinger (although I'm a total noob right now), I'll let it do it's thing now. Hi everybody. & Thanks Gill.

Great to hear that the great word of BOINC has reached you.

Are you running the Milkyway@Home project on both the CPU and GPU of your sig rig?
