If there was a largish cache of free 8800GT video cards.... - Page 7

post #61 of 63
If these cards did end up being given away, I'd propose they were used for the foldathon (and similar events) prizes over the next few months, rather than just a 'who wants a card' basis. That way we're more likely to get them into the hands of those who fold and keep folding. We could probably get OCN to spring for the shipping too - which would be fairer all round.

Personally I'd definitely be interested in a couple (especially if they are single slot), as my living room is largely heated by GPUs in the winter months, so the more the merrier. But again I'd prefer to see them used as folding incentives rather than just free cards sent out to anyone who asks. The OP definitely deserves something for the time and effort he'd have to put into this though, regardless of whether he gets the cards for free (and that's not definite either).

I could probably make use of 2 or 3 if I got the components. I have an extra 600W PSU laying around.

i like this idea, but either way i could use one or two for my current system and then trow them in to a dedicated folding rig once i get the rest of the parts in
