I will probably put the PHII x4 back to folding, I gave it to my 90 year old grandma that has cancer and she is all for it of course. That should put me very close to the ~68K or so for the top 20. I always have the SR-2 on the backburner if I really want to push some PPD but I try to keep it free for my video/3D editing. Plus my power bill(and heat) is getting crazy again, with the dually going it would be nuts this time of the year.
Kind of off-topic but what are the requirements for the big-bigadv WU's in linux? I was thinking of trying it out with the 2600K instead of normal linux bigadv that it is running atm. I know the tricks to get it to run on the 2600K but what speeds are roughly required and how much playing room would I have at 4.7Ghz to make the deadline. I do light work on it a couple hours a night. Just web browsing mostly. Would it still be possible to make the deadlines and would it be worth it over normal bigadv considering I will be using the computer a little each night?
You can meet the deadlines on both the 920 and 2600 easy. I'm at 4.2 on a ph ii x6 and beat the deadline easy. Digigami has a good guide for the 2600 I have a guide for beginners but I assume you know your way around Linux.
