Couple Questions on Folding - Page 2

post #11 of 16
The performance hit between SMP folding in a Linux VM and native SMP folding isn't much to the best of my knowledge. Here is a great guide for Linux VMware SMP folding. About FAHmon, I've found that if often takes it 5-10 minutes after a computer has finished a WU for FAHmon to realize it. As for the PCIe x4 slot, if it is a physical x16 slot with x4 bandwidth, it will work fine with very little (3% maybe) performance impact. If it is a physical x4 slot, you are going to have a hell of a time fitting a card in

lol its a pci-e with 4x bandwidth. It's a DFI P35 based mobo.
Now I'm considering a 9800gtx+ + 8800gs combo...nah I won't bother. I won't become an addict
So anyone confirm I can do ATI+Nvidia folding with seperate clients?

And how do I get it to show that I fold under my avatar?

Oh what!?! You have to fold for overclock.net???
I made my own team. So I get no recognition for that?

So is there a guide to folding with an ATI/Nvidia card, in Vista, or Linux for that matter?

Oh jeez brainblast!!! What if I ran F@H in Linux, with the Nvidia driver...and my 4850 normally in Vista...using Virutalzation of course for Linux??

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

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..
