It sounds like a good idea so I've downloaded it

Now I've just got to figure out how it works!

Hi,

I'm Matt, I work as a Cisco engineer full time.

I am quite up with IT and i am running the gpu client on my 9800 GTX XXX Black Edition.

This machine is running a core i7 920 CPU with 6GB RAM.

I may also load up a few CPU clients

My fiancee's PC it's running on is another 9800 GTX (If she doesn't know, it doesn't hurt me! )

That's a Dual Core Duo @ 2.66GHZ with 4GB ram

I also have 2 linux machines, (Dell 2600 Xeons, Old but reliablish! )

Soon to be a few more hopefully too, Switched from CustomPC to DW as CPC i got as far as i could with my setup.

currently at 9224 Points Per Day on my GPU systems.

Hey Guys

My name is Kevin, I'm an aircraft engineer

Know enough about computers to get myself around, but dont know too much about real detailled stuff:- just spent a while getting my head round the terminology (i.e work units, core, clients blah blah). Got the basic CPU client up and running, and after some brain damage got the GPU client going.

Since my previous computer went belly up in june, I splashed out and got a pentium i7 quad core with 12 GB ram. My next challenge is to see if I can get an SMP client going, though that might take a lot more brain damage to get my head round what's involved, since it seems really complicated. Standby for some questions

Glad the computers actually being used more than just recording TV programs with media center and the odd blast on Crysis (since the things gotta be on in the first place to be recording stuff, it might as well be doing something worthwhile)

Hi, I'm Matt. Currently unemployed but desperately seeking work!

I know a fair bit about computers and have nicked my brothers tower whilst he's at uni playing with his shiny new laptop. It's only a basic 2.2ghz AMD 64 3500+ processor with 1GB of ram and a Nvidia GeForce 7300Le graphics card, but al least it's doing something now instead of being sat for months on end doing nowt so now it's going to be a pure folding machine for a while

Hi I'm Tim Aka Chunkytfg and i'm and alchol............Sorry wrong forum!

I've just installed this F@H thing on my MAcbook pro 2.26ghz with 2gb ram and although it spends it's life on standby when it isn't it doesn't really get taxed much by my surfing so I may as well do something useful with the rest of it's capabilities

Welcome to the DW FaH Team you new guys!

Can I add a gentle reminder... Do please say who you are, and at least which
FaH client you are / will be running and basic details of your machine into this
thread. If you later post asking for help, people like me can refer to this
thread to gather some info they might need to give you a helpful reply.

Thanks.

Regards,
Steve
