Buying a budget folding gpu.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok basically I am picking up an antec earthwatt 500W, to run the rig I will post below. I am thinking about the 8800GS...or two 8600gt's in sli, but I am open to even ati suggestions. I just want a brand that has a lifetime warranty. This computer will only be for gpu folding and nothing else, no gaming(unless my sig rig dies).

Ok the system I have built so far:
Antec earthwatt 500W(on its way)
Apevia Xcruiser
Gskill 2x1gb HZ's
Intel Celeron D 360 3.46ghz lapped
MSI 650i sli board
80GB seagate sata hdd
IDE Dvd Rom

So 8800GS or 8600GTx2 or something else?
