Couple Questions on Folding

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Okay so I'm starting to fold. Finished my first project, how do I submit it? Or does it do it automatically.
Also can I use a 4850 as my main system, and a 8800gs for folding if my mobo as 2 pci-e slots?
How much PPD would these 3 processors make:
E6300
E8400
Q6600
Not dedicated, but on my system that I will be gaming on.

Folding@Home automatically receives new work and sends finished work.

I believe that there are different clients for ATI and Nvidia graphics cards so pick the one for the GPU that you will be using.

As for the processors, it all depends on what Operating System you are going to be using and what client.

OS
--
Linux > Linux in Virtual Machine > Windows

Clients
---
GPU > SMP > Console Client > Graphical Client

I suggest you get the SMP client of Folding@Home to run on your processors. If you really want to reap maximum ppd on the processors, I highly recommend doing it under Linux or Linux in a Virtual Machine

SMP is getting really buggy these days. Combined, the three processors should make ~5000PPD I think.
Yes you can use two GPUs for folding on the same machine, but since you're gaming, you'll have to turn the folding client on and off since the GPU client takes up GPU power every when you're gaming, causing a large drop in performance.

Would I need drivers for both ATI/Nvidia? Would they conflict?

What if I had an Nvidia Client for the 8800gs, and none for the ATI client, and the ATI card was my primary graphics adapter? Wouldnt that work then?

You cannot have both ATI and Nvidia graphics on the same computer. You can have 2 nvidia cards or 2 ATI cards, but not 1 of each. A serious driver conflict would take over your systen

^^This is not correct. I have had a Geforce 6600GT and a Radeon x1300 in the same system, with the latest drivers for each, without a problem.

I want to game on my 4850, and fold on the 8800gs. I will probably fold on the 4850 too, only using the idle cycles.
This is going to be fun.
Now I sorta wish I got a Q6600 for folding, instead of the E8400..

And also, I will most likely be doing the SMP client in a Linux Virtual Machine. What is the performance hit versus an actual Linux machine, hopefully not to much..
Another thing, Fahmon is showing 100% on the GPU client, and it's already finished that project, and is working on another one, yet Fahmon still hasn't updated that it finished the 1st one? Already restarted as well.

A friend has a x4 pci-e slot, will that be good for folding? How does it compare to a 16x or an 8x slot?
