I'm not afraid. Unless you can manage 40k+ PPD from that, I think that I'll have nothing to fear
You should get 4 single-slot GTX470s, or failing that, 260s. Or some GT240s for cheap PPD
Meh I'm not going to be adding any folding muscle in my rig, my wallet is already deflated.
Of course, at least now I know that I can readily upgrade my system when I feel like it.
I just had a crazy idea about baking though.
A few people here came up with an alternative method of "baking" their GPUs, and claimed that it worked.
They took off the heatsink for the GPU, and then installed it inside their rig and booted up, and waited for the GPU to overheat.
After that, they put back on the heatsink, and the GPU worked.
It was not only one person, but a few who have done this.
Honestly, I don't believe in this practice at all, but hmmm...what if...
