Whats a better choice for folding?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I want to build a computer for folding, what would be better, 2x 9800gx2 or 1 gtx 295? I can get them both locally for the same price, $150.

Maybe someone recommends something better for around the same price.

Thanks

A GX2 gets around 12k PPD, while a 295 gets ~18k, so the 2 GX2s will get more PPD.

But they'll be hot, loud, and hungry for power.

Quick question, do the nvidia's FX cards fold good? I own a fx 1800, what kind of PPD might that get.

thanks

It'd perform the same as its comparable GeForce GPU.
