GPU tracker is awesome. Just make sure you setup your passkey, team and bigadv using 11 cores. For the gpus hit autodetect in it will do the rest.

and to me, when you dont get the most bang for your buck, you're wasting your money.. people that shop at best buy, wasting their money.. people that buy coffee at starbucks, wasting their money.. and people that build a i7 9xx rig over sandy bridge these days, wasting their money, etc, just my opinion, but then again im one frugal motherf'er lol

Nice gpu farm you are putting together. Let us know how those single slot gts450's work out for you. I have a feeling that the i7 -bigadv days are numbered. Info about the new v7 client detecting physical cores and not just threads will do way with the i7 and x6 bigadv loophole.

Thank you. I'm pretty excited to get it put together.

I'm confused about the i7 situation though. Isn't the point for the tasks to get done fast/faster? If the i7s can do this, why not give them the extra points?

They would be very, very stupid to do that, considering even quads now can do -bigadvs. Nobody would do them and there would be a huge surplus of the units. I have a feeling the days of -8 core only -bigadv is numbered.

And if they did try and lock it to 8 physical cores you'd just go the virtual route - can't separate threads from cores then.

I would be more concerned about GPU folding than CPU as far as the future is concerned. Personally I wouldn't build a GPU farm at all until some more ATI client details are concerned, especially one that involves buying so many cards.

My build of choice would be 2600k plus the cards you have on a cheap board. If you really want to buy a GPU too then dual slot 460s make more sense (to me) than multiple 450s too - much less to go wrong with fewer GPU clients.

Nice build, Im on the same boat, just started building my i7-970 rig with 4 460s. I'm sure there would be a way around using all threads once the client is released.

lol some people are so sensitive, i forgot the internet is srs bsns. i may not sugar coat my words but everything i say is true, you however, seem to have no clue.. wait a few months for ivy bridge? you realize there's haswell and rockwell after ivy bridge right? ever heard of intel's tick-tock? by that logic, you'll never have to buy anything, forever waiting LOL.. "should i wait" is one question i'll never understand, grow a pair and make a decision based on your (financial) situation, there's always something to wait for like OP said.

and assuming i jumped on sandy bridge just because it's new is pretty ignorant, i've never bought an intel cpu in my life. that's how good sandy bridge is. im not even going to waste my time and link reviews for you, for the price it walks over every other option, especially when it comes to folding. like i said, nearly double 950's ppd at half the power consumption. if you're starting from scratch, you'd be a fool (OP) to pick a 950 over 2600k. but like you said, to each their own.. sorry to burst your bubbles, i know ignorance is bliss
