Folding@Home & Nvidia Gaming

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so im getting another 8800 GTS with a new mobo, cpu and ram sometime around next week. My question is would it be possible to make one of the 8800 GTS fold@home and the other to do lets say gaming ? Would it have to be in sli for it to work?
Help is very much appreciated.

Yeah, quite easily. You set up the GPUs for multiple GPU Folding, then only run the 2nd client, leaving the primary GPU free for gaming. SLI isn't necessary.
