I have a 4 core intel i5 running @2.40GHz.

I'm using all 4 cores, and I want to know roughly how long a badge should take me if I crunch only 1 sub-project at a time.

Thanks,
Chris

That depends on a few things:
1- Which subproject do you intend to crunch? Some get you more credit than others.
2- Which i5 is it? 4th gen (and above) are much faster than 3rd and 2nd gen, and those are a lot faster than 1st gen CPUs. That's because they use the FMA3 (4th and above), AVX (3rd and 2nd) and SSE2 instruction sets. For any given task, the credit is fixed, however big the speed gap might be.
3- If crunching for the bigger subprojects, RAM bandwidth becomes a problem.

Best way to figure out is to crunch 4 WU of your desired project, see how long they take and multiply by the time it took to complete.

It depends...on what subproject you choose but roughly a day.

High-end quad core CPU can do even 50k credit a day on some subprojects.

For badge levels, see Badges thread.

Your first generation core-i5 lacks the AVX and FMA3 instruction sets, so it will be about half the speed of modern CPUs. I'd guess about 1 to 3 days per bronze badge. Higher level badges take progressively more and more work. The next badge, silver, for example, requires 10 times as much credit as the bronze badge. After that, each badge takes between 2 and 5 times as much credit as the previous badge. The first badge (bronze) requires 10,000 credits. The last badge (double emerald) requires 50,000,000,000 credits.

Thanks all!

I'm mainly focusing on Genefer, PSS, Reisel and PPSE, so hopefully it won't take too long to get a bronze on each of those :D after that, I will diversify, but for now I'm just looking for a few quick badges ;)

PPS, PPS MEGA and PPSE all share the same badge. And the MEGA project is the one that gives the most credit per h, so I'd advise going for that.

For genefer, a GPU (if you have one) would be MUCH better. But the same rule applies: for higher the n (15, 16, etc), the more credits per h you get.... just expect run times to increase by 3.5x for each 1 higher, so tasks can get lengthy rather quickly.
