I've been working my butt off trying to get more ppd, I've got 2 gtx 275's, a 650 ti, and an 8800gt running along with a 965, 8320, and my newest build, a 4670k, i definitely think i should invest in an amd card, im only getting 50-60k

Yea you can get 100,000 ppd with a 7970..  My last one got a open box power color vortex for $280.00, can get em for 275.00 if you keep an eye out for sales... I saw the other day dave or bosco had some for sale on the forum here also...

This just happened with the new core 17 release, had I known I would not have bought 2-gtx 570 and 2-gtx 560ti either...The old I7-920 and x58 boards work great for this, it had gotten to where they werent worth running either when they changed bigadv to 16 core minimum...

I just rebuilt my main rig and my other one only produces about 2k ppd. Everything else is in storage while I am living with my parents.
