Is there a table of resources used by each project?

In my own case I have a fast processor, compatible GPU, and plenty of disk. Network usage is my bottleneck - the processors are idle part of each day because I have to use the "Transfer at most" settings.

I'm sure other people might have plenty of network capacity, but less disk space, for example.

How can I find a project which makes good use of the processors but doesn't transfer so much data? I can dedicate about 6 GB per month to BOINC projects.

Thanks.

You might be able to get some idea from WUprop@home - that takes you to a page with a column which gives some idea of data transfer per day, even if the column for data download per WU seems to be broken.

Thanks - that's a helpful list even if it's not ideal.

It seems that my two initial projects are pretty data-greedy. GPUGRID is the top of the data/work unit list and Rosetta is well above average on a per day per core basis. I'll look for some projects I like that match my situation better.
