The GTX 560 are brand new cards. I would go with one of those if a had to do it all over again instead of the GTS 450 that I just bought. Is x2 the amount of points and only uses 1 slot. You will pay about $50 dollars more but if you have 2 slots in your mb you have room for another one later on. Its all up to you. Depends if you want bang for the buck or PPD.

GTX 560==>GTX 460==>GTS 450
$250==>$100 MIR==>$90
14.5k PPD==>10k PPD==>7k PPD (all stock speeds)

so the best bang for the buck would be 2x gtx 460, or even 3 in that case

Thanks guys! I will be purchasing the GTX 560 this upcoming week. In the near future I will also purchase another one and sli them for folding. I currently have a crossfire board. Would I have to buy an amd sli board or is there a hack somewhere to sli with a crossfire board?

If it's just for Folding, then your board will be fine; no need to SLI for Folding.

If it's gaming, then I believe there is a patch, but you'd be better off asking someone else.

Indeed you can. Folding works without SLI, even on non-SLI boards

Thanks guys! I purchased the GTX 560 TI OC by Gigabyte

Currently getting 15,576ppd with the factory overclock


I waited for the super overclock version, but that looks like it will take months. If it becomes available within a month, should return the one I bought for it?

8k for 950core GTS 450? Damn, I better cancel my order for an ASUS GTS 450 TOP (925core) then. £99 for ~8k is a bit too much.
