Yes they own the house, but I believe we looked into that already, we would get almost no output from them in winter because of the angle of the sun. Yay being above the 45 degree north mark...and it would take 4 years to recoup the cost of a 2.5 KWh unit.

But ya, my 750W rig runs about $50 per month, it kind of sucks.

Are you in a suburban area or rural (on a farm)? If in rural area, you could install wind turbines that will produce power for you whether the sun is up ot noy - all you need is wind

I'm on a farm...I guess I'll have to look into wind again.

To give you an idea on cost - a 500w/24v wind turbine costs approx $900AU. Then you need to add an inverter (a grid connect one would allow you to get "feed in tariff" if applicable) - a cheap 1100w grid connected inverter will cost approx $1200AU - but that will also allow you to purchase a second wind turbine later on.

So:
$900 - wind turbine
$1200 - grid connected inverter
---------------
$2100 - total
---------------

So for $2100AU (plus installation), you could generate 500w of wind power (as long as winds speed was at least 22mph).

Or for $3000AU (plus installation), you could add that second wind turbine, and you'd now produce 1kw of wind power an hour (again, as long as wind speed was at least 22mph).

If I lived on a farm, I'd have a couple wind turbines for sure and not have to worry about my PC's increasing the power bill again

I'm actually now looking at the prospects of building my own...I'm having trouble deciding between a traditional windmill style generator, or a Vertical Axis generator...I could generate more power with the Vertical Axis generator, but it would be 4m tall and 2m wide...and possibly heavy...but I shall explore the possibilities...

So the 5850 is a good card to run BOINC on? I've been using a couple 8800gts'...(until mobo died). Upgrading mobo to an AM2+, 4 pci-e2.0 board. I'll have room for the 8800's and 2 additional cards. Heck, I can even put a quad or hex core cpu in now!!! I remember how much my points went up from single core to dual. Does anyone have a link to a BOINC/gpu workunits chart? I remember the 9800x2 used to be the card to use... Anyhow, I'll join up as soon as I get my sig rig working again.

Just moved back over from Linux to Windows 7 to get the most out of my 5870 - should nearly double my credits now.

I am SO tempted to upgrade to a 5970, but the value of 5870s has dropped so sharply recently that I can't really afford it, and there's no way for me to go Crossfire with this PSU.
