Hi - I have a NVIDIA GeForce GT 530 (2048MB) driver: 345.20 GPU and I am getting results like this:

Short runs (2-3 hours on fastest card) v8.48 (cuda65)
(1) 3,023.42 seconds – 50.39 minutes – 0.84 hours
(2) 2,932.99 seconds – 48.88 minutes – 0.81 hours
(3) In Progress – will be about 4 hours

Long runs (8-12 hours on fastest card) v8.48 (cuda65)
(1) 375,428.32 seconds – 6,257.14 minutes – 104.29 hours
(2) 481,436.37 seconds – 8,023.94 minutes – 133.73 hours
(3) In Progress

Hi. Personally wouldn't run long WUs on a GT 530. Many of them won't make the 5 day deadline and will be sent out again to another user. At the least your wingman will not be happy with you because you'll cause him to miss his 50% bonus and will be wasting his GPU resources. At the worst you won't get any credit at all.

An example is your last long WU:

Since it didn't finish in 5 days it was sent out again and a lot of GPU time was wasted. The GT 530 should work fine on short WUs. If you put your ear down to your GT 530 while it's running you can perhaps hear it saying "It sucks to get old." ;-)
