I have no idea whether it's cost efficient or not but I found this blog with a nice guide to it:

Unfortunately he seems to have limited himself to the following projects:
SETI@Home NEW v7 Client
Einstein@Home (BRP)
WUProp@Home (waiting for response from project admins)
OProject@Home (ALX)

And not primegrid.

Aww... Too bad, it would have been cool to see another way to donate processing...

Thanks for the information though :)

Directly taken from their web page:
We’ve outfitted OUYA with NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage.

(99 dollars / ea)

Since ouya will be available for low prices and extremely small packaging, would there be any point in producing a BOINC client for them?
I can expect that they could cluster perform almost in the same way as the Pi Raspberries.

Or is it that they're to small of a market or to small performance/cost ratio?

Didn't find anything in the forum and thought I could at least ask :)

In the BOINC Manager GUI, on the "Projects" or "Tasks" tab, click on a PrimeGrid line. Then there should be a button on the left side, "Preferences". If you click on that, it will open a web browser page that will allow you to select which sub-projects you want to contribute to, via the "edit preferences" link. Since you have an i5-2500, you can run any of the CPU projects in good time. Your ATI GPU will only work on PPS Sieve.


Awesome, thank you very much! It worked like a charm.

It'd be nice to read how one would go about to make that change.

I'm pretty much at the stage where I run my computer 16 hours a day, 5-6 days a week, but newbie when it comes to everything else.

I read the notices but that's pretty much the extent to what I'm doing. So when I read this I'm interested in helping but I'm not making much headway in finding how to select projects.
