It runs windows and has dual Xeon 5400 CPUs. I plan to add a Tesla K80 GPU to it. I am not very knowledgeable about computer hardware.


Your thoughts about this machine please.




2) Questions and Answers : Windows : new computer lots of computational errors (Message 54995)

I bought a new computer and installed BOINC. I am getting lots of computational errors on both projects I crunch. Rosetta and Seti both are acting up. I am running Vista home premium on a quad core with two G of RAM. The ram usage is never over 50% and I have loaded very few programs. I am ripping through 72 units a day but they are all errors so nothing is being accomplished. I have reset the projects several times, rebooted the machine several times and still have errors. I think my 98SE machine is doing more completed units than my new hot rod. Suggestions?

TNX,

Has there been any progress on this? I could plunk down $500 for a machine that crunches number 16-19 times faster than my PC. Unfortunately, the only thing I know about Linux is how to read the installation guide.

Rosetta won\'t request anymore work for me. The mini ran fine and beta units ran after it. Now that I have reported all the work back it keeps requesting 0 seconds of work. All I\'ve gotten today is SETI WUs. Hope they send a patch out soon.
