Well, I was feeling left out of the nVidia BOINC-related tasks (all my GPU's hail from AMD), so I started looking for a deal on a used nVidia card. I didn't really have a particular card in mind, was really more focused on just getting something used for a good price. When low and behold, I ran across a deal from NewEgg for a brand spankin' new EVGA GTX480. It was only $210 (shipping was free), so in a moment of weakness I decided to take the plunge and ...

Took a quick look at this thread, installed the 266.58 drivers (thanks deegon!), restarted, and VOILA!!

Now my sig rig has a little bit of RED, a little bit of GREEN, and a whole lot of BOINC!!!!

Sweet deal. Happy to see you getting into BOINC pretty hardcore. You will be up there with the big dogs in no time.

I may have to upgrade my 460 here soon. The fan is starting to make a very hard vibration when it gets up to speed. But I can cure it temporary by touching the fan while its spinning.

Very nice purchase! I looked on Newegg and looks like they are back to $249 for the EVGA cards now. I'm curious of the power draw on PrimeGrid for the GTX 480. When running Cullen/Woodall (Sieve) 1.12, my total system power consumption goes up ~140 W to a total of 358W with WCG and PrimeGrid running. GPU is clocked at 800/1600/1950.

The GTX 580s are dropping in price too.

389.99 after rebate
