Redundant Secondary Graphics Card.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have recently finished building a much needed upgrade rig, but I've kept my old Zotac Geforce 470 in as a secondary card to deal with Physx. I've done a few benchmarks on different 3DMark (they're on my Rigbuilder page) and found that the 470 is more of a hindrance than a benefit as the Titan can easily take the load, but I'm still unsure as to whether taking it out would affect performance, would anyone be able to give me a yay or nay whether it's worth the extra slot on the mobo please? Has anyone else had the same issue when upgrading cards?

I honestly would not use it for physx at all. even a 580 is going to slow down your titan for that purpose. If you like to do distributed computing apps, then both can be used for Einstein@home, FAH, GPUGrid or the like. You might want to consult a guide on how to get just the 470 to run those though (I have no idea, as I dedicate everything I can to the BOINC program).

Thanks for all your help, I'm trying to get to grips with folding@home, and I've removed the 470.

It has been a while since I used FAH, but iirc you should have to set up a user name and input the OCN team ID (assuming you want to be a member of our team, if not, then enter the correct team ID for your preferred team) (OCN ID is 37726). You can get your passkey from here http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/getpasskey.py.

Other than that, it is as simple as install, and let it run.


EDIT: here is the community how to on FAH. http://www.overclock.net/f/366/folding-home-guides-and-tutorials
