You don't need a 4P machine to do a little better than you are now. I was doing about 14k ppd on my 965 and 5830. Once you get your 7950 up and running, you'll probably start doing better, too. Especially if you run V7 client and enable x16.
Well, looks like a bunch of you (PerryC, Supafly, etc.) who I was originally going to catch have now surpassed my 24h average while using HPCS (I'm using HPCS too, but you seem to have it optimized better than myself). Anyways, I'm down one GPU at the moment. That's worth about 8K ppd. Hopefully by mid-next week the replacement for my 5830 (will it be a 6850 or a 6870?) will show up. Early next week should also result in my new 7950 arriving at my door. I'm also purchasing a GTX550Ti from a coworker (a favour to him since he bought the wrong card) that I'll put towards folding duties. So, the fight is far from over!!!!!
