Bang for Buck GPU

post #1 of 9

Was looking at the chart on this link.

Am I reading correctly when I say that the GTS 450's are the best bang for the buck in terms of folding?

My vote goes to 470 if you are limited on PCI-E slots, if you are building a farm then 450 is the one to get.

I can pick this card up for almost 120 bucks less then the 470 and only and its only 15 bucks more then the Cheapest 450. and shipping on this will be 3 bucks.

I will be ordering my new stuff at the beginning of the week for the fold-a-thon.

Frys has the GTX 460 for $100 after $40 MIR.

Otherwise the GTS 450 will be nice. I get 10k ppd on them.
