well I started again.  660kh/s @ 71 C.  I'm still mining dogecoin because I'm too lazy to set up a miner on a ltc or what ever alt coin pool.  I hope doge goes back up a bit.

Speaking of the GTX 750 Ti, it seems like a good card to build a PE-4L eGPU assembly around because of its power efficiency. It won't need a huge PSU, allowing me to keep the whole thing portable, and PCIe x1 bandwidth over ExpressCard bottlenecks most high-end cards anyway.

 

It's definitely the sort of upgrade my T901 needs. Damn Tablet PC manufacturers crippling their $1,900+ MSRP machines with Intel graphics...at least I only paid $300 for this one and it's ExpressCard-equipped.

 

Also speaking of upgrades, I pulled the trigger on a $110 Crucial M500 240 GB and set it up in my T901. Holy crap, this blows away the Intel X18-M G1 80 GB in my older 2730p, to say nothing of the original 250 GB HDD the T901 came with. Loading times aren't completely eliminated, but certainly minimized; I suspect the main culprits are held back mainly by their splash screens being a loading bottleneck.

 

I'm gonna have to get more SSDs for my desktops now, but I just don't have the money for it at the moment.

Oh god, this was just uploaded:

too bad it was one of the not so good episodes.

 

Apparently 4x4x3/8th inch of copper stock is like $50-$60 so looks like I'm just going to be buying a cpu block.  Ek supremacy seems to be a goo choice.

SSD's have gone far in terms of reliability and performance. I'm still quite shocked seeing people selling 4 year old + first generation Intel X25 80GB ssd's for $80 on ebay still when you can buy a Crucial or Corsair 80GB for little less and performs night and day better.

There are plenty of uninformed consumers (aka teens/'geniuses'/etc) that think SSD = SSD!!!

 

Shave a few dollars on a used product, and they buy.  Some teenagers have a very tight budget, which is understandable, but it amazes me how first gen trash sells on eBay for $70 used when you can possibly get a new unit (current gen) for less.

Even I spent the money on a brand new one... how stingy can one be...

What hashrate are you getting again bowei? I feel all poor and sad like "it's not even worth it" when I turn down my clocks and kh/s goes under 700.

 

I don't pay for electricity and other than portal 2 and audiosurf, I haven't gamed at all in the past 2 months.  So I really need to mine.  NO EXCUSES. 

But the values have dropped so much : /

wha 1.110v with 1.1 and 1850 mem >.> my 7870 hits 1.244 with 1.2 and 1250 :[  and that's at around 65c mx load >.>

Yup and there's some dude on facebook that says his 7790s can go up to 1.4GHz and be stable.

Yeah, and my case is made of solid gold.

That's not saying I don't believe you.  What'd you use to test and for how long?  What about dat fan speed doe????

 

My card used to be cool.

As for me, saying it's stable Isn't entirely true, it fed me some artifacts the other day... or rather the entire screen blackened then it looked blocky... but that was due to a brown out, as my entire pc was buggy after that [I reset it and all was well] 

 

Non the less, I wish I could shove more voltage through my PCI slit but it's maxing out around 1.250

 

and even if I drop my clock speed to the Stock 1.0 increasing the memory above 1250 [with the stock AMD oc ulitilty] gives me a bsod

 

but 1.2 and 1250 is plenty for me atm [haven't tried wii re rendering but I'll get to that]

Sigh...wish I picked out a 750 ti instead of a 750. Meh, haven't even tested the performance yet. Actually I haven't even built the system. $134 vs. $170 I guess. (Twin Frozr)

Or AMD

 

I forgot what your specs were but I believe it was a 400W?

 

Even the 26x AMD GPU's would do fine as long as you have the plugs availble. There are still good prices for AMD cards in that price range. Also the AMD ones perform a bit better.

 

$170 for a T50 Ti?....haha..no.

 

At $170, I would just wait for when Newegg has deals on the 270x. But you are gonna need a decent PSU with two PCIE plugs for that. A cheap 400W won't cut it(also need to worry about rails a bit on that if you decide to use a 270x on that).

 

A single 270x at full load was somewhere around 210 to 250W. Your system draw at full max theoretical real (meaning if everything was for some reason or at some rare point at full draw) would probably still be under 400W. But relying on a $20 PSU to do that without calculating the effect on the 12V rails would be dangerous for you.
