yes it does kind of suck how specific the parts need to be. That is why I am running all of my parts through a home lab server,

Yes I do mean world community grid, I do understand that they have started gpu beta testing but due to them having other projects would they not have projects that run best on cpu?

thanks for the reply and sorry for getting back to you late. But I after thinking about it and picking the projects I want to work on and based on the prices of gpu at the moumnet i think I am just going to stay with my certain gpu and build a cpu forced system mainly for use on world grid. and I did know that they would be running different tasks which is nice becuase if I where to add another gpu I would most likely have it run a different project.

sorry for very late reply. I have been asking around the world grip forums as it seems like there server cpus are very useful and make sense.

100% I know I am going in deep and I am up for learning and failing I just want to try and lower the costs that I will get from failing or at least try. And it brings a cool element to me that this is a less traveled route that still has a lot of problems which I feel is more fun than click and boom BOINC is running. But I do have to save up so in that time I will try and learn more about servers and such.

so after talking with some other people it seems like I could run two GPUs in one system. I am using a MSI b450 gaming pro carbon board and an rx5700xt. my question is would this work and due to bandwidth would I see a decrease in the workload that I should see from the second GPU. Sorry if it is a bad thing to ask this late in this thread I really wanted to do servers and did not think about using my own pc but if it works I may do that for now but there are a lot of things at play so do not think that your advice is going to throw away if that makes sense.

Yeah, I already run BOINC sometimes on my main pc but I really want a pc where I do not have to worry about it and it does not act as my main thing for everything so I think and will enjoy BOINC. I just really want to find the best CPU and GPU for me. Kinda wanted it handed to me because there are so many options that it is very hard to choose. But thanks for the luck hopefully using this place I will find what is best for me and I will start being able to help.

I also think it is important to understand that if I am able to get a good computer that will run boinc well for a couple of years to come I may be able to bump up my budget

So overall for my price range and understanding do you think I should go down the server route? If I where to go down that road how well would the 300 ish dollars or more servers run boinc and have you ever run those budget servers. Also thanks for the help

Ok when I get the time I really look at some cards check pricing and power and heat and noise and such and hopefully I will have a couple of good ones and with that maybe I could bring it here to see if anyone has done anything with those cards.second would this also be a good place to https://www.geeks3d.com/20140305/amd-radeon-and-nvidia-geforce-fp32-fp64-gflops-table-computing/

Yeah I sure the at some point servers are going to be the right way to go I think that at my price range I would never really be able to put in say 3-4 gpus. With server hardware for cpu how does that compare to desktop cpus ? because I was thinking about a cpu only server and just uses my certain gpu but I feel like that may be way to much money what do you think?

So what would be a more reasonable budget for what I am trying to do. second I going to say that servers would just be a way too far out of my budget is this correct? If so how much more would I have to increase it to make it possible

should I just run my own pc with a better cpu cooler for now? Sorry sometimes I get caught up in things and it would be really cool to have a computer just for BOINC but that my not be possible> I still want to try it but sorry if this thread is "bad" and really not getting at much I am just looking for the best way to help boinc out and learn about working with computers both commercial parts and server part if that makes sense

After thinking about it doing a server may not be the best idea. I would be doing a lot of projects that are GPU and I feel like it may be a pain to have to get them into the server but would it make sense to have a computer running maybe two GPUs are something and a server running powerful server CPUs or would I not see any bump form the server CPUs and am I justing reaching for something at this point?sorry if this are dumb questions there are just a lot of optinos and I bit over weldam. would you recommend asking on the forums for the certain projects that I want to run on what they have found is best.

that make sense I will just need to find a way to quiet down what computer I choose. I will look at those post and with that and the wedsite info make my choice of cpu and gpu. Could I possible get a link to something about the Rx580 because I do not see one if there is one?

So I may be reading this wrong but would you say that the rx580 would be the best bang for my buck coming in at around 300 bucks and doing more work than the 3060 at least for milkly way ?

As I said in another reply one of the reasons that I want to do this is to run servers so is there any way to do that.
