Got an unexpected ‘free’ speedbump from Comcast from 50Mbps to 60Mbps.
Ran a test before and after rebooting my modem, using Ookla Speedtest, and the before and after results are below.

Have this video card on my main CAD workstation (Q8200 2.33Ghz Quad-core 8Gb RAM Vista 64bit).
Updated the video driver to a nvidia 182.08 windows Vista 64 release after some windows vista problems with the 182.20 release. Seems to be working great.
Ran POV-RAY 3.6.1 Benchmark version 1.02
Render averaged 103.58 PPS over 147456 pixels, in a total time of 1423.63 seconds.
Boinc manager benchmark results:

Wanted to take advantage of the CUDA from NVIDIA (a leading GPU manufacturer) – a system that uses GPUs for scientific computing. You also need a minimum of 256Mb Video card RAM to take advantage of CUDA. This will also increase my BOINC/SETI processing speed. My current nvidia driver for my PNY Quadro FX370 was dated 5/26/2008 release 126.96.36.19996. So l downloaded the latest driver from the nvidia website and the new driver is now dated 12/26/2008 release 188.8.131.5220
/this works okay on my Quad-core workstation and boosted my Vista index from 3.6 to 4.2
My Vista index ratings for my Processor/RAM/Hard drive was before and after the update 5.9
Graphics rating went from 3.6 to 4.2
Games graphics capability went from 4.0 to 4.6
It will be interesting to see this week what this GPU processing does to my boinc/seti ratings.
