When you fold for OCN you fold for team 37726. Its an all out run what you brung kinda thing. There is absolutely no limit to what you can fold with as a general OCN folder.Original Team Folding.
This is very restrictive. The best thing to have in this group is a high clocking dual core. The reasons are.
1. CPUs are limited to 2 cores. Basically if you folded on the quad you could only count the team points from 2 of the 4 cores.
2. GPUs are limited to a single card and 2750PPD. Your 9800s would easily pass that and all the extra PPD wouldnt count towards your team score.GPU Team competition.
This is less restrictive, but very competitive.
You are still limited to one GPU core, but no PPD cap. Basically the top dogs here are GTX 275/285.
Basically, no one was trying to hurt your feelings or anything. Its just that your system is too good for Original Team folding, but your GPUs might not be good enough to compete in the GPU Team folding.
Obviously you are welcome to fold for OCN as a member, and we are glad to have you.
