Re: GTX1160

In my opinion, the best combined performance per watt and per pound at the moment is either the GTX 1660ti or the RTX 2070. The 1660ti isn't that much of an improvement over what you already have and the RTX 2070 is quite a step up in price. Of course you could upgrade both GTX 1060s to a single RTX...

Re: GTX1160

Not a lot of difference between them in capabilities, slightly better performance for the GTX1660 due to the higher clocks and slightly lower power. The GTX1660 does not have actual ray tracing cores, ray tracing can be done on any Directx capable card (even on the GTX1060s) If buying new then I'd g...

Re: BOINC Network preferences not working

Hi Tim, OK, done a bit of experimenting. Tick "Transfer files only between" and set to 00:01 and 00:00 (or any other combination where the second time is before the first) Set the individual days to the times you want - Tick Thursday and set the times to 13:01 and 23:59 Select Activity -> Network ac...
