Power Stress Test

Alright, Doing a power test with an amperage meter hooked up to my computer.

I'm looking for a program that will peak my Processor, RAM, Video Card, and HDs all at once to see what the highest amperage rating my computer will peak at.

Right now I'm peaking at 3.0A playing UT2004.

I've been running XP 64bit for the past year. No issues at all, and I love it. All my apps and games work fine.

I've read up on Xgl, never used it yet. Mainly because I dont use Linux on workstation machines, so no use for a GUI, straight console FTW.

5.91 SMP Releases

All I can say about this is WOOT!

No more having to run 2 different instances of Folding on a Dual Core, Hyper-Threaded, etc.. machine.

Although, the only version of the 5.91Beta Client for Windows is the GPU Console. The versions for OS X and Linux CPU Folding are released.

If you're on a budget, you could always upgrade to a Pentium D. You should be able to pick up a Processor and Board for roughly about $250.00. The Pentium D's are Dual-Core and 64bit, so not a bad price at all for them. Or, you can go with the Core 2 Duo's. A 1.83Ghz C2D on NewEgg is $183, and you s...

Decided to go with the HP Pavilion 6110us.

CompUSA had it on sale priced at $699.99 last week after rebates, so I couldn't pass it up.
