what's CS? I'll be using it to watch porn. :mrgreen: Actually, I'll be using it for stock trading simulations. Plus it'll serve as main machine. My current dual Xeon will be backup and I've been helping develop a way to do the simulations via distributed processing so that with both machines humping...

Thanks duudes!! You've sorta talked me into after thinking about it for a while. It seems to be the only way I can get a system that has all of the best components. If you guys will be patient with me I have a digital camera and maybe you could walk me thru the process and/or point to some docs that...

Need help finding system builder

I'm about at my wits end trying to find a company to build me a dual processor capable Opteron dual core system that will incorporate the specific components that I want. The closest I've been able to come is MonarchComputer.com but they have just a few motherboards, power supplies, etc to choose fr...

Thanks!

I was really interested in timings as I'm trying to figure out how much faster I can get with an overclock.

As to why the Super PI - it relates to this thread:

Apoptosis: I'm a little reluctant to try and overclock my xeon machine as its my primary and I can't really afford to have it down or screw it up :shock: So, I'm really leaning towards a new one dedicated to just running the simulations. Its very kind of you to offer to run some tests on your rig(s)...

kenc51 - thanks! And you're right about the forum - I've ready many in my search and this is the only one I've posted to. Apoptosis - I'd read that earlier today and was a primary reason for my first post! Thanks! Could you point me to some articles/posts on how I might get started on a project like...

I got it because I do other things on it as well.

I realize that a mutithreaded app would be nice but I can't force the company to do it. They've been promising long enuf for me to give up waiting.

Ok - current avail hardware is out - but how about something overclocked?

Another noobie with lots of questions..

Hello all, I do a LOT of simulation work involving trading in financial markets (I trade for myself) which results in runs taking as long as 3 days (yep three) on a water cooled dual Xeon 2.8 with 2 gig of memory and nothing else special. The system is 3 years old. The simulations deal with an artif...
