Collatz Conjecture will do, but you also have to wonder if you want to due to their high power usage.

I just hope you have an account there already, as they ask for an invitation code these days, due to a spammer attack. I don't know how to contact Slicker for the code when you don't already have an account.

You can also check http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/results.py (WUprop) to see what projects other people are running on your same hardware and OS combination.

Thanks for the answers.

In Collatz if I have an account, the energy expenditure does not matter.

It was knowing where I'm going to be able to get better performance from these old cards. (Seti, Moo, Prime etc ...)

Thanks
