Thinking about picking up a 450 - Page 4

post #31 of 35
I hate those insta-decisions Back talking isn't possible then. Have you looked in the used section here, or thought about something older, like a 9800GT.

Good luck with the 450 though, mom's are stubborn. Tell her it's for a good cause, that Folding is the most selfless act technology can ever achieve, and your helping make the world a better place

What I do is order a new component then say to my mum "getting something delivered on Monday", then when she asks me what, I'll tell her that it's a graphics card or whatever. But she doesn't usually mind, luckily.

But yeah, an 8800/9800GT or upwards willl be a decent choice for PhysX and stuff, but you're not going to get anywhere near the PPD of a GTS 450. I can't remember how much I got with my 8800, it may have been as much as 7k, but I can't remember. That was probably on a decent WU, probably more like 5k on something not as nice.

I got a 8800 GT for PhysX and it gets about 5k PPD.

I have a 450 GTS, overclocked to 925mhz clock and 1900mhz memory as suggested by another thread, currently folding @ 10k PPD, its been on for the last 2 days at 100%, temp is 50C

Does anyone know if I can bump it up a bit?

THis is also with CPU folding on as well

A GTS450 will pull ~7-10k depending on clocks on WUs. Also, I've noticed that the GTS450 pulls ~1k more PPD when it's the only card in your system vs when it's a slave. So in your scenario, I'd expect to see 7-9k.

I'd suggest you also go for 2 more GB of ram too.
