Usually the egg but I'm in no shape to make one important decision on that yet. And my wife's new rig come first, as promised. It'll be a while, at least two or perhaps 3 weeks right now, I think, before I canreturn to projects other than work.

Standing, yes, although for limited amounts of time and its gotta be bolt upright. Sitting is down is the worst part because the fold is where one of the larger incisions was made. Can't sit upright at all, period. Gotta be leaned back at least 30 degrees or so. Tain't no fun damnit!!

The 260/216 SE ovcerclocked like mine do a fine job (7-7.5 K PPD) and run very cool. Don't settle the less in the 260 line when one of older but cheaper cards may do just as well. The 260/216 SE's are also very quiet. Other than that I don't know sheite fron shinola. I think I'd shoot for a 4 slot board no matter what for the potential mix/match abilities.

Not without having to take some extra pain relievers. I don't wanna do that cuz it impairs what I gotta be able to at work. So its slow way down to what is tolerable and doesn't create any more problems, or almost nothing at all. Tramadol is nasty stuff when taken as long as I've had to. Hell I almost can't my one and only good leg in and out of the friking car as it is now.

More than 75% of the time, absolutely. But remember I'm running the shaders at +10 to +15% depending on which card/which machine.

I've even seen a few go damn near all the way through at 8k PPD. So they're not the hottest little hotrod in town. I don't care.

They're reliable as hell and not picky as to workunits once one has studied their behavior long enough. I love 'em and for the price they're going for down here right now, I'm not sure I'de hot to trot on buying anything else until all the new stuff is on the shelves.


Nope, no pain drugs either. Just tramadol with 500 mg tylenols added as a boost of sorts, as directed.
