If you want to fold bigadv and You don't regulatory fold at night then your not going to be submitting WU's on time

I think you meant how long in Jedix's case, but I can't answer that so I'll give a general reply instead.

Most -bigadv WUs have a 4 day deadline for bonuses (they actually have a 6 day final deadline, but you only get base points (8,955pts) for that, and they resend the WU out after the 4 day deadline has been missed anyway).

A moderately OC'd i5 2500k, using native Linux, would be finishing them in 2-3 days. So a day before the deadline basically. If you only turn off your computer for a few hours each evening, you could possibly complete the WUs.

However, since these WUs are so big, and things can go wrong, the lack of flexibility with the deadlines means that unless you're going 24/7, SMP would probably be the safer option. As around; there's little worse than completeing a -bigadv WU only to find you got no points for it.
