New to folding...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just started to try folding and got my system set. Will it hurt if I have 3 computers folding? 1. Main system listed in profile 2. Compaq PD-940. 3. Gateway P-4 1.3 (423pin). I might also sneak the wifes AMD on just for the fun of it.

Nope, it will just get you points faster, and help find a cure that much sooner.

Heck, some people here have 10+ computers, with 20-30 cores going.
These are the same ones that get more points in a day than I have gotten in 4.5 months.
