Oh okay. I don't do much gaming so looks like the 8800GT for me. I found two in the classifieds. A guy selling both a PNY and BFG. Think I'll go with the PNY since BFG went out of business.

Sounds good

~$50 is the average going-price ATM

Mine did up to 5.8k PPD on the 353pt WUs

Ah! Sounds better than the 1K PPD I get with my PS3 and tiny bits I get with the other computers running in my house. I'm guessing you can OC the GPU? If so, what PPD do you think I'd see?

Checking in.

Not new to F@H, just never had it set up properly in the past, always just ran the unicore version.

Have the SMP running on my sig rig.

When you get your first 10 done and get bonus points, you can move on to -bigadv WUs.

Then you're really making some headway.

That was OCed

It got ~4.4-5k stock, ~4.8-5.8k OCed

Okay guys. I got my budget build together and just got my 8800GT today.

So I'm guessing to use this guide for the GPU?
http://www.overclock.net/folding-hom...pu-client.html

and for my E1200 OC @ 2.8Ghz. Should I bother folding? I don't think it will do that great folding. I might be going for 3.0Ghz or 3.2Ghz depending on stability. And if I do, should I do SMP or just the standard client and set it up x2?
post #988 of 3400
I m new at overclock.net.

30 years old man from Finland
I do personal training,welding and poker room support stuff now and then.

Have been doing fysiotherapy with people having Parskinsons, other neurological diseases, strokes and Paralyzis. I have Azheimers and cancer running in my family.

I have 9 years old son and 5 years old stepdaughter.

So those are the reasons for folding.

Looking to upgrade my gts 250 to another gtx 460 and use gts 250 in another amd folding rig (just have mobo,hdd,dvd-rw,heatpipecooler now) and this PII 945 to 2nd rig too so i can buy that 6 core thuban.

Thx

Set it all up. GPU & 2 Unicore Clients are running. Right now the 8800GT is cranking about 5.3K PPD with a slight overclock @ ~70*C not bad.
post #990 of 3400
New folder here, just running GPU2 on my gtx260 while I'm not gaming. Getting between 4-6k PPD.

Tried to SMP with my e5300@4ghz, but that wasn't doing well and my room got nice and hot with both running, so I scrapped the SMP client.
