I got an ATI HD 6970 and I'm running about 404 Mhash with 950mhz overclock and this batch command:

Quote
start /DC:\Users\user\poclbm_py2exe_20110428 poclbm.exe --host=btcguild.com --port=8332 --user=blahblah --pass=blahblah --device=0 -v -w 128 -f 60

I'm messing with the "-f" option, using values like 60, 70, 80, but my computer keeps crashing when I try to play videos on webpages and the like.

Which are some good "-f" settings to use so that I can use my computer normally while mining? I don't wanna play 3D games and stuff, just watch embedded videos etc.

i'm fairly certain there is an issue w/ playing media while mining with the 69xx series cards. if i fold or mine i can't use windows media player, itunes, or flash or my system will freeze, and i've heard numerous reports from other ppl as well.


ASIC miners available for purchase

Hi

6950 & 6970 & 6990

Turn off Hardware acceleration of flash player(open a youtube, right click, disable it) before mining.
Pause mining, before playing a 3D pc game.

It is not necessary. I play some PC 3D games with -f160 on 2x6970 in crossfire. The Witcher (1) for example.
Video acc. is other case.
