Ahh good on ya  :)
I'll never be that high...all I have running for me are:

My C2D 2.8GHz
a 2.5GHz Celeron
a Athlon XP 2200+ @ 1.8GHz
and a school machine (celeron 2.4Ghz) I only get to use once a day for an hour :P

Kurtis, you'll get some decent numbers from those CPUs I would think.
I have an 8800GT folding up to 10 hours a day (usually 3-4), an Athlon 64 3200+ folding 3-4 hours a day, and one core of an Athlon 64 X2 3800+ folding a few hours a day.
If I was folding 24/7 I could do a lot more, but that's not happening unfortunately.

The celeron's pretty crap at it though, it isn't a Celeron D by the way, it is an older, 128KB cache celeron  ::)

And I only use once core of my C2D, and it runs between 6-18 hours a day

The Celeron maybe 4 hours.

Athlon XP the same.

so yeah, it gets stuff done though :)

Hehe that is interesting.

However...i just found that if you restart...both the cores get confused, and they will both try to do the first WU  :-[

Only a good idea it would seem if you keep your computer running for long periods of time.
