Folding GPU

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm planning my new AMD Phenom 2 rig and I'm stumped on the GPU.
I really want to fold, so I'm looking for a card to throw in my Gigabye board that will work on 650W or less.

I'm looking for something for under $200 bucks that will beat my current Radeon 4650

You're looking for an nVidia card for folding. Can't look at prices right now, but aren't the GTX460/465 reaching 200? a GTS450 is also a good choice

A used or on sale 470 if you wait enough should be perfect.

You can get a GTX 460 for around $140 after MIR and a GTS 450 for about $100

how many Free PCI-e 16X slots do you have left?

if you have a couple. pick up some second hand Cards off the sale forum on OCN.

The board will have two slots. I was thinking of dual wielding cards, but im unsure of the power reqs, I've never done it before, and im not sure if I have the finances. Any recommendations?
