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!
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.......
