@lanechanger: Welcome! That should still be a pretty good earner and I look forward to seeing how it compares.

Going Nvidia made a huge difference, I should be pulling 3-4 times as many points a day now. My desktop also runs much smoother with F@H running. I'm curious to see what happens to my points when I allow it to just run without shutting it off for games.

@hobbz: Indeed, this is exciting. We should make good progress beyond 500 as well. Thanks for bringing F@H back to GB's attention.

Last time I checked the light mode shuts off the GPU entirely. They were unable to find a method of throttling the GPU without creating serious problems for the user so it's all or nothing.

I just leave mine running on medium all the time since the CPU only accounts for at most 5 percent of the 150k I make on average per day. It does have a slight effect on desktop and video playback performance but I'm willing to live with it. I only shut it off when running intensive or time-sensitive software. I think most people run it your way though @hobbz.

A few more of those nVidia cards sure wouldn't hurt! It looks like we have a real shot at cracking 500 soon. I really wish that there was a cheap option for keeping old video cards running for F@H but even the used options I have seen are either too expensive, don't have a PCI-e slot or are far too large and loud to just leave sitting around.

Hey guys, I just noticed that there were more active members on the team! It looks our productivity has doubled in the past week, @hobbz you are going to step all over the lead I've been carving out. I just ordered a GTX 1060 to replace my now slightly glitchy 7970. That should give us a nice bump as well. I can't compete with that 1080 though, I give it at most 2 months before you overtake me. That stat tracking tool is extremely useful.

Thank you everybody for chipping in, I'm really happy to have active members in the team again!

Top 900. We must be nearing the point that we can't get any higher without more powah, but we still seem to be making steady progress.

Sup guys. I just got back from a week away (computer folding away of course). I'm super excited to see the progress we are making!

I just noticed that I have over a million points and the team is nearing the top 1100. Not bad!

@cirdain: Looks interesting. What...is it exactly? Or roughly?

I haven't really been paying attention to games for a while.
