I go by the rule of, if I can't afford to replace it, then don't risk it. My company knows my workstation is overclocked, and underwater. But I just explained it them that if I were to go through 3 2600k's, it would still be cheaper than a Xeon of the same ability. My 580 isn't overclocked at all because it handles rendering just fine without it (I think a 580 was a very drastic overkill for my setup but everything looks sooo pretty )

I'm kinda thinking the same thing. A new unlockable 6950 doesn't exactly go for peanuts.
Your sig-rig is your work computer? Nice. Who paid for the water?

My work. When I first started my job I was using a Dell Vostro 420 that had a 2.5 ghz Core 2 Quad, 32 bit operating system w/ 8 gigs of ram , and a 8800GT. Needless to say, I had many problems running SolidWorks and any other program at the same time. The machine barely could handle SolidWorks alone. I need to have 3-5 different demanding programs open at any given time. After losing a lot of work due to crashes when trying to save, my company decided to let me get a new computer. I then convinced them that I would be able to get a whole lot more computer for the same price as some Dell workstation. They gave me a $3k budget, I think it all came in about $3200 w/ the new operating system.

Now I can fold 24/7, run Solidworks and pretty much any other program I want. I do max out my 8 gigs of ram pretty often though. But to move up to 16 gigs of ram, I need to lower my O.C. to about 4.2ghz as I couldn't ever get it any higher.

I do have my VM allowed to use up to 4 gigs of ram, is that overkill? Should I drop it down some? Right now with Chrome, Outlook, VM Player, Solidworks (4 files open), Spotify, (2) Explorer windows and Real Temp running, I use 6.6 gigs of ram. At idle my system used around 1.5 gigs w/ no programs open.

Nice. I love spending other people's money on my toys.

What runs in your VM, and how much ram does it actually use? I have my XP VM assigned 768MB of ram, as I only use it to run a vpn I can't run on my mac - if I play with CAD, I bump it up a bit, but my laptop is old and only holds 4GB of ram.

I only run the folding client in there. It seems to only use about 2.5-3gigs.

Why have it in a VM? does it run better in there than directly on windows?

I decided to turn my GPU client for my 580 back on for the remainder of October. It only drops my 2600k PPD by 2-3k but I am pulling 16k PPD with the 580 which will help me for the new folders league/ fold-a-thon
