Woo-hoo! 10 million and the top 20!

 

I've hit my goal!  Time to dial it back a bit.  After 3 months of elevated power bills, I'm going to draw down my active boxes to just 2.  Particularly since warmer weather is finally coming to Utah, making it more difficult to keep things cool around here.

 

I'm going to find out how difficult it's going to be keeping 2 video cards from different manufacturers running in the same case (MSI 7770 & Asus 7790)  I'll probably upgrade the MSI, just so I can take advantage of the Asus OC program, as modest as it is.  

 

Anybody else have any experience with that?  Or do most folks just run one high-powered graphics card?
