I am looking at upgrading my PC which is just used as a desktop office PC, I need to get a new graphics card and wanted to get one which can crunch for PrimeGrid too. I just wondered what gives the best bang for buck in the sub-£50 price bracket?

I await your insights!

Minor suggestion - can we add a number_format() to the mouseover text for badges, it's sometimes hard to count whether there are 5 or 6 zeros after the 1 ;)

I've got 4 running on my PII 940 OCed @ 3.5Ghz.

You overclocked a Pentium II to 3.5 Ghz!!!

Very impressive ;)

Yes it is related to mentioned post, you're quite right that per 100T would be more informative - perhaps speaking to Joe O at SoB might bear more fruit than asking here.

Just wondering if there are some stats available for the hit rate for factors per work unit?

Ideally i would like a breakdown by month of work units completed and factors found.

Over at seventeen or bust sieve we're excited by the prospect of the challenge and look forward to the additional help. Just wondering if the PrimeGrid admins could post some before and after stats to show how much of an area has been sieved during this challenge?

Thanks again for your support!

Just wanted to say a massive thankyou to all those who have supported this project. I've been a lowly supporter of the Seventeen or Bust project for several years and about this time last year there were probably no more than 20 users working on sieving for the project.

Thanks for the confidence boost guys :)
