He was looking into replacing those rigs with 7x GTX 970 setups, but last I recall he was having issues with an Asus workstation board not letting him use more than five GPUs at a time.

Geez... 6.2M PPD, that's more than what I would make in a week at my current rate. So he wants to rock 7x 980s on each board... interesting, I know Asus is good for rocking more than 4 PCI-E x16 slots, sucks that he can't get them to work, hope he does.

Same. A week or two ago he wound up RMA'ing the board to Asus, because even they seemed to be baffled as to why it wasn't working. I think he was running 4x MSI Gaming 4G and 3x of the Golden editions on that rig, and was estimating 2.2 million PPD or so? They were 970's, not 980's. A rig full of 980's would be rather interesting to say the least. (Most I'll be going is a second one, but that's because my gaming rig I might just say screw it and go with dual Titan 2's if they aren't too too expensive upon release...)

Oops, meant 970s, but I do hope he gets everything settled. I hoping at the end of everything being built I will be able to fold at about a low average of 300k / 980 x 10 (maybe 11) = 3M PPD. Pending my total power consumption will depend which one will constantly fold or what have you - don't intend to beat scubadiver69 though... that 6.2M is outstanding.

Best of luck if you decide to go the Titan route, I wanted to and was recommended that route but then I figured why not pay the same amount for multiple 980s and have that "redundancy," if one dies I still have a others to take up the slack.

Yeah, in the end with such I'm waiting to see how the new Titan 2's perform, mainly because at the estimated $1k a pop we're already talking 2xTitan 2's vs 3x980's, so it will be curious to see how the scaling is between the two. I would personally prefer to run two card SLI if at all possible though, simply because more games play well with two cards as opposed to three, not to mention that the performance boost of three cards isn't always as high as going from one to two cards. Then again, I'm insane and want to run several games at 1440p surround (7680x1440), and preferably on high (ultra wouldn't hurt, but high is plenty good imo), and that's pushing even more pixels than just a single 4k display. And it's newer games too, like Asetto Corsa and even Project CARS, and of course various shooters ^_^;;;

Wallet sure isn't going to like me this year tongue.gif ...3x x99 setups (5820k for djing/folding rig, 5960X (maybe) for gaming rig, and of course hubby gets a new computer as well), several video cards for each, new desks (at around $1,500 CAD times two (spouse gets one too!), a benching rig (thankfully a lot of parts for such will come from hardware that will have been upgraded to x99 rigs), whole slew of new monitors (upgrading to triple 27" 1440p displays for myself AND hubby - I'm debating triple ROG Swifts, and he seems happy with the idea of a single ROG Swift and 2x Dell U2715H's, or three Dells)... And somewhere in there I need to sneak in a new living room TV plus a couch. tongue.gif


....And the guys at work wonder why my vacation times are usually staycations *laughs*

Now I don't feel so bad, especially with the builds I'm working on, you have me beat. Don't think I'll spend the equivalent of $1500 CAD on desks but I may spend another £100 on a similar or same desk that has my two 27" Asus monitors, don't think I could rock three... wouldn't mind though. As for the living room t.v. just keep to the rule of thumb... once you go up you can't go back down - wanted to upgrade a 46" due to old age and the only thing I could find at the time for a reasonable price was a 70"... I can't go back (smaller), just don't have the heart.

With that being said, these fold 24/7, not to mention I want to see how long I can keep my name on the top 20 producers for Overclock.net. If I can manage to get my 980s to fold equivalent to lanofsong then I'll be in business - not to mention I figured since I don't pay into charities much any more this is the closest I can get to having a proper use for my GPUs and helping society in cancer research.

Do I fold? I fold. thumb.gif (current 1.1M PPD across all GPUs)

Fine by me wink.gif

Give-r!

When I get my PC back up, I'll have the following hardware folding
i5 4570
i5 4690k
fx-6350
hd 7790
R9 280x

for an estimate of 330k ppd which is still less than a 980 lol QQ

 

Intel Atom N270 (only NaCl once in a while)

AMD Athlon II X2 260

Intel Xeon X3440

NVIDIA GTS 450

NVIDIA GTX 460

NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti

 

All for around 125K PPD.

You are a good man Wulfe. With Asetto Corsa you need to remember to get a racing wheel for the best experience possible. My desired desk costs $21500, though I might settle for the less expensive version at $5950. MWE Labs Emporer 1510. Likely at least one Dell UP2414Q would go along with it. I want the ability for 4K IPS for editing and such, 1080p 144Hz, and 1080p IPS for watching movies. All can be gotten with ~24" monitors as well. Then there is the thought that I might want 3x144Hz monitors. First world decision problems. These are all dreams currently.

As for the living room t.v. just keep to the rule of thumb... once you go up you can't go back down - wanted to upgrade a 46" due to old age and the only thing I could find at the time for a reasonable price was a 70"... I can't go back (smaller), just don't have the heart.

Well, they're closer to $1,250 or so before taxes each, it's just the $260 each shipping that's the killer (or closer to $420 if I order both at the same time, which is the plan). Obutto R3volution x2, Acrylic tabletop x2, triple screen mounts x2, flight stick mounts x1, a10 hotas warthog mount x1. Apparently it all adds up pretty quick and is something like 300kg total, so expensive shipping be expensive. Before that we were looking at about $800 in professional office desks each plus a $1k chair (Steelseries Gesture) so it will actually be cheaper to go with the R3volutions, not to mention the fact they cater more to a lot of our plans for our rigs anyways.

Also, I'll playfully say this: only marry a techgeek if you both have big wallets, makes life easier when you want something new and shiney because the first question you always get isn't just "so what do I get in exchange" it's usually "and I'm getting one too right, at the same time?" tongue.gif it's great though, because it's a lot easier to get approval for shinier computer parts, and in fact he wants me to get my benching rig by the end of this year, especially since neither of us have a problem if a dedicated bencher happens to get smoking components at some point.... *grins*

My desired desk costs $21500, though I might settle for the less expensive version at $5950. MWE Labs Emporer 1510. Likely at least one Dell UP2414Q would go along with it. I want the ability for 4K IPS for editing and such, 1080p 144Hz, and 1080p IPS for watching movies. All can be gotten with ~24" monitors as well. Then there is the thought that I might want 3x144Hz monitors. First world decision problems. These are all dreams currently.

Well, originally it started planning with "eh, I'll get a G27 and see how it goes", and then as you read on they start failing after a while of abuse (usually a few years, but still), and aren't the most accurate for feel. Having done autocross before, feel is everything to me, not to mention one of the driving factors behind building a sim rig in the first place. Secondly, with Logitech cutting corners some products plus the uncertain future of their peripherals department.... I started looking at slightly higher end stuff, so then came in the plans Fanatec v2 base with a BMW wheel and Carbon Formula wheel plus their h-gate shifter, but when I priced it all out using Simulation1 pricing (they're the Canadian dealer for Fanatec), it came out around the same price as SimXperience's AccuForce Pro. Then I found out about the DSD Pedals aaand... Yeah. That plus the AccuForce, not to mention DSD Short throw Pro Sequential shifter, the DSD Hydraulic Handbrake, and the Race King r12 button box....

Note that I haven't purchased any of that yet, but it is in the plans ^_^;;;;

Also, I've plans for the Thrustmaster A10 Hotas Warthog joystick/throttle combo for Elite:Dangerous, ~maybe~ Star Citizen (I'm waiting until it has more features and is at least Beta with signs of coming upon release), and get back into flight/combat sims like I used to enjoy (I still miss playing Jane's AH64-D Longbow as it was sooooo much fun in the late 90's, especially with my Microsoft Sidewinder USB joystick that I had at the time). Hubby will be going with the Saitek X52 Pro as he prefers the look of it more, but I have suspicions I might wind up with one as well, and he might also wind up with the Thurstmaster A10 Hotas Warthog as well, but who knows. We'll see how it all goes when that bridge arrives. I would have considered CH's products, but I've always had an affectionate love for the A10 after hearing about it from the various techs at 408 yeaaaaars ago, then getting to play one of those mid-90's top-down arcade bombershooter games that featured the A10 (I think it was on the SNES). Or maybe it's my love for the Van's RV-8 and how some of the VAF guys adapted ACTUAL F16 joysticks into their cockpit tongue.gif Or getting to sit in a CF-18 yeaaaaars ago. Or the aesthetics. Or the metal construction. Or that it would seem appropriate for getting back into Mechwarrior:Online as well tongue.gif Just a few reasons *laughs nervously*

So it'll be about 50% more in the end, but then I'll only have to buy the parts once. Bit overkill for technically just getting into things, but I ~really~ miss racing and in the past when I had a comfy seat I'd spend 8 hours at a time (or more) playing Gran Turismo of various versions.... Yeah, I know I'll spend my time with it ^_^ Scary part is that it would be cheaper than picking up a late model (90-91.5) AE92 GT-S, somehow finding it at a bargain (they've jumped back up to 5k out here for some stupid reason, for YEARS they were hard to sell even at $2k with TRD quick shifters and TRD street suspension), and then pick up two decent sets of tires... Fuel, oil changes, brake fluid changes, entry fees, club fees, and the various modifications to make it competitive even in Stock would add even more onto just the first season's costs.

My plans aren't total overkill, are they? *laughs nervously*


As for that desk, awww they got rid of the $45k version. They are neat, but those are the "we won the lottery" versions for us. Emperor desks are a neat concept though!
