Im going to RMA this 1950pro, to bad iv got no money or id go for a 1950xt, or xtx.
That sounds terminal! I'm sorry to hear about your problems though. The gpu folding is real sensitive to other programs being run on the computer. Again, that's why my 1950XTX does nothing but that, Fold. I saw that coming when the original gpu beta testers were trying to get their rigs going. At the time, 600+ points a day was great. Now it not worth the trouble. I also think it can't be good on the gpu card, folding 24/7 for months on end... When it dies, and I'm sure it will, I'll go with another Conroe, perhaps. I do have another 1950XTX in my main rig (the old aborted attempt at a second gpu rig in Dec 2006), so I could use that one. But the gpu's are really hard to set up, keep running, and the points are not that great now...
As a side note. It seems the PS3's are getting a lot of press now. When the prices come down, maybe one of those would or could do it?? I haven't seen anybody here in OCN using those yet, right??
Take care and hang in there! :-)
