Word of caution. I do not recommend processing more than two WUs at a time on your primary computer.
I am running the following:
Intel 3.0 HT 800 FSB processor
Giga-Byte 8IPE 1000pro
2 Gig Crucial DDR 400 ram
2 SATA Maxtor 200 gig drives
running two WUs on this config slows my computer by half. Also raises the temp of an Intel by 20 degrees F
An AMD will raise in Temp by at least 30 to 40 degrees causing equipment life to be cut down drastically.
Windows 2003 splits up the separate WUs and evenly distributes the processor load among the WUs.
*****XP DOES NOT!!*****
If you try and run 10 WUs with XP you will have a VERY difficult time accessing ANYTHING short of pushing the power button for a hard shutdown.
thought I'd let everyone know from my mistakes and learning the hard way.
