Depends on the WU/CPU/CPU OC/SHADER OC!

Soooo many factors involved, plus this GPU2 is Beta, so nothing is finalized.

BUT, from what I have seen so far

1. 8800 GTX/Ultra
2. 8800 GT 512
3. 8800GTS 640
4. 8800GTS 320

Best bang for buck folding wise would probably be an 8800GTS 512, I'm getting close to 6,000 PPD if I ran it 24/7 with no games.

MSI has the cheapest on newegg, along with someone called elitegroup or something...$209 + shipping

Right now = 8800 GT 512MB

I just bought a few 8800GT's from newegg open box for $140, for testing.

FROM redrumy3 at OCF.



I am hunting down a GTX, GTS, and Ultra to compare!

I am still waiting on the other shoe to drop...Stanford might very well CHANGE the points system to accomodate the SMP and ATI folder!

I'm a folding newb...

Where are you guys getting those PPD figures? I've already worked through 1 5000/5000 thing and now I'm already 3800/5000 on the next... I just see this:

Attachment 75847

Whenever I open the display my computer lags a little too, normal?

Yes, do not open it. It takes CPU power away.

^^ Download Fahmon and as it says on the first page don't open the viewer, slows down the folding

Anyway.

Anyone running this and SMP?
I've been trying a few things but i'm pretty new to folding so i'm a little unsure what would give me the best results, i'm running the GPU client right now and 3 instances of SMP, It hasn't effected the performance of the GPU client or the SMP client, GPU client is finishing a WU in just under 30 minutes
and SMP is is erm 6 minutes per step..

I'd bet it's the gpu it's affecting, not the cpu. Displaying the little window and graphics.

He is right, for some reason I forgot all about 8800GTs, forget what I said about 8800GTSs being the best bang for buck

From the 8800 GT club:

http://www.overclock.net/3347406-post1.html

Can you imagine ALL the points being left out of OCN from this list alone?

avg 4.5k per person PPD...WOW.
