1) Message boards : Number crunching : Nvidia Question (Message 1604175)
Posted 1 day ago by Profile Blurf
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (2048MB) driver: 344.11

I keep getting pop-ups from the Nvidia Control Center saying a Nvidia "Gaming Driver" is available but shows no version #.

Wondering if I should do this or not?

Thanks ahead of time.

Where they post rules for such events? What exactly participant should do to bring money to SETI@home? Would be nice to see such guidance for absolute novice too.


Here is some info:

EDIT: and what control mechanisms to check if donated computation time was converted to money for SETI@home as expected ?


Honestly, It's a matter of trust. I can vouch that the appropriate amount was donated to Milkyway.

I would recommend asking more over on their forums, Raist.

Milkyway gained over $3,000 in fundraising from Bitcoin Utopia. This has potential to be significant for the funding Seti needs.

That doesn't actually answer my question. If that $3,000 required more than $3,000 in electricity to generate it, then it's a net loss to the project (versus direct contributions equivalent to the electric costs) and environmentally costly at the same time.

So, to figure out if it's advantageous or not, it seems to me that there needs to be a way to come up with some sort of cost / benefit ratio for this kind of approach. Is there?


Sorry Jeff-my post wasn't meant to be a reply to your question. Sorry I didn't make that clear.

I just believe this fundraising opportunity will be a benefit to Seti@Home based on my experience as the Liaison between the Milkyway project and BU

Bitcoin Utopia always has CPU & GPU work available and can benefit either Boincstats or Milkyway in the process.
