    Can you return it? If not, how much would you sell it for? Not necessarily saying that I would buy it, but I am a sucker for good deals.

    However, I am sure someone must be working on this so hope you find the not so costly answer.

    I could probly return it, but I want to keep in good faith with the supply house that allows me to buy stuff with them, and avoid retail markups, and sales taxes.

    I would be OK with a small loss to keep that relationship...but if any hacks showed up, I'd try them first.


    Basucally, I want as much CUDA processing as I can get into this 2,1 box.

    Suggestions?

    And..I'll look you up first, if nothing comes up.

    What are the specs of the MP 2,1? I know what a 1,1 is and I have a 3,1...

    It will probably work with netkas injectors! His thread is on the second page.
